hilger contemporary is delighted to announce a first solo exhibition by John Gerrard (born 1974, Dublin, Ireland). The show titled 'Dark Portraits' presents a survey of works in photography and in virtual sculpture, a medium which Gerrard is championing to increased acclaim.
Christiane Paul, new media curator from the Whitney Museum, (NY) notes 'that John Gerrard has created a series of projects that are deceptively simple, yet radical in their questioning or even redefinition of the status of traditional media in the digital age'.
