Moran Bondaroff is pleased to announce Vigil, Kon Trubkovich’s third solo exhibition at the gallery. This new work presents a departure from his practice of the last 10 years. Prints of paused stills from the home video archive of a family friend are used as stage sets for experimentation. Anonymous figures move through various scenes. Familiar objects suggest the normalcy of quotidian life, and yet an oddness in the movements of the figures point at something else playing out, concurrently.

Moran Bondaroff is pleased to announce Anders Ruhwald’s first solo exhibition at the gallery, titled The Hand is the Mind is the Bomb that Blows. With this exhibition, he presents a new series of 25 large ceramic sculptures.On the surface, these works focus on one of the most basic interactions – an artist’s hand shaping a material. Through Ruhwald’s hands and the process of firing, matter solidifies into meaning. He created these objects during months of focused studio work, which was a complete immersion and embracement of the metamorphic nature of clay. There was a sheer physicality to his process as he transformed tons of clay and gallons of glaze with minimal use of tools and through countless firings.
