KRISTEN WENTRCEK / ANDREW ZEBULON STUDIO
1241 Bedford Avenue
Brooklyn, NY 11216

The work of Kristen Wentrcek and Andrew Zebulon focuses on the manipulation and transformation of industrial materials, through a language rooted in furniture design and architecture. They choose to work with materials such as fiberglass insulation, wire glass, medical cast tape and natural rubber because of their innate familiarity. This encourages the viewer to approach, interact with, and contemplate this work.

In order to accomplish this, Wentrcek and Zebulon must push the boundaries of what the material can handle and its intended function. In the process, they create new techniques for handling and refining materials that would typically be obscured or contained, resulting in wholly unique forms.

“…the exhibition felt a bit like stumbling upon a conceptual crime scene.”

“…playfully blending minimalist precision à la Judd with a Willie Wonka-style flare for fantasy.”

“…furniture that looks almost like a Twinkie.”

“…hard-edged, minimalist, and aggressively anti-trend.”

“Cozy like Twin Peaks.”
