Jeremy Everett: Proposal for A Defective Monument

Edouard Malingue Shanghai, 2202, 2879 Longteng Avenue

Jeremy Everett’s first solo exhibition in Mainland China at Edouard Malingue Gallery, Shanghai, takes its tile from his new film, showcased on the occasion. “Proposal For A Defective Monument” (2018) is a four-channel video which shows the marble quarries in Carrara, Tuscany, Italy. The images surround the visitor with the white or blue-grey tones of the rocks, involved in a slow and monumental process of creation.

Beside the video, the exhibition presents a series of works through which Everett explores the act and processes of painting, such as the series of paint and light-sensitive emulsion on blanket works titled “Cushion”. Centrally-placed amidst this scene is an installation, which ultimately ties them all back to the film and exhibition title: a slab of Carrara marble, standing on a plan. Everett provides a view on the monumental and architectural treasures or on the history of painting, and references to the Land Art masters such as Robert Smithson and Michael Heizer.
