Lucky DeBellevue

Feature, Inc
76 Greene Street, NYC
through March 30

Lucky DeBellevue's recent participation in the March group show at Feature includes two large pipecleaner formations, one hanging tinfoil structure, and a series of interlocked rings on tinfoil hooks. Sunbeam, made of pipecleaners, is the most distinct representation with its crystallized light falling from an invented window. Sunbeam is a drawing and points to an exterior focus. The other pieces, without clear reference, abound in the purity of incessant nervous energy, resisting the notion that sculpture has to refer in the first place.

These works maintain that in order to get to nothing one must first pass through something. Figuration in this context clouds and disenables that experience by allowing attachment to something.
