This Place Not For Me
The first solo exhibition by American artist Cody Hudson in Denmark will take place at V1 Gallery in Copenhagen next Saturday. The exhibition, titled This Place Not For Me, includes 18 drawings and 3 sculptures by Hudson. Minimal and subtle, more or less abstract pieces, as we are used to seeing from Hudson, are all part of the same delicate vocabulary. The three sculptures in the exhibition are composed from the found wood and reflect the shapes and structures and poetics of his drawings. The exhibition will be on view through March 15th.
