Carlo Ferraris – I Brought This Fucking House Because Of This Table!

Carlo Ferraris has two exhibitions running concurrently at the Florence Lynch Gallery.

Carlo Ferraris - Lobbia

“I brought this fucking house because of this table!” is comprised of video, photographs and an audio installation all documenting a table and the place it occupies in space. The title of the show is a bit of a mystery, is it supposed to be bought instead of brought? The confusion increases as the gallery has written the sentence a few different ways on their website. The work is all very strong so ambiguities concerning classification should be overlooked.

Carlo Ferraris - 40º 44' 50. 77'' N 73º 59' 30. 43'' W

Also on view from Ferraris is “All the artwork I would have made if Horen Higgins was my father”. The centerpiece is the only electro-domestic handgun ever made. No home should be without this modern convenience.
