Sean Ripple, Tagging
May 21, 2011
Wurhaus proudly presents Tagging, a solo exhibition by Austin-based artist Sean Ripple. Using an image of the object he wishes to tag as graffiti material, Ripple has created a body of photographic work that can be thought of as his signature.
For this one-night exhibition, Ripple will transfer his practice from the 2D photographic plane into the 3D space at Wurhaus. Facades of various sorts will be crudely altered/defaced in an act of symbolic commentary regarding a very human practice; specifically, as the artist described, “how we subjectively interpret and alter objective reality to suit our own needs.”

From the artist:
Bathroom bra burner and fashion icon Sally Johnson has just been awarded a grant from the National Endowment of the Arts to profile Detroit’s burgeoning art scene. Once inside the city’s borders, Johnson gets bored and becomes enamored with a group of local nightlife figures and chooses instead to highlight their personal musings on life. Facing ontological fissure, will Sally J. say “No way!” or fall prey to the maneuvers of these new creatures? She may be strong willed, but style wields new power in this space and it’s written all over her face!
