Opening next Tuesday at Zach Feuer Gallery in Chelsea is Tickle the Shitstem, the third solo exhibition of Phoebe Washburn with the gallery. Washburn’s work explores absurd systems of production and the by product of waste. Tickle the Shitstem is a developed system in and of itself where the production and the waste are of equal importance. Some of the products produced in the exhibition include beverages, pencils, colored urchins and t-shirts. The installation will remain in production for the duration of the exhibition.
Phoebe Washburn is a graduate of the School of the Visual Arts in NYC. She was included in this year’s Whitney biennial and has completed solo exhibitions at Deutsche Guggenheim in Berlin, the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia and the UCLA Hammer Museum in Los Angeles.
