massimo vitali

New York, NY (January 31, 2012) - agnès b. is pleased to present a solo exhibition of work by French artist, Julien Langendorff, at the agnès b. Galerie Boutique in Soho. This is the artist’s first solo show in New York.

His work combines collage, pen and ink drawings and paper cut-outs of 1970’s erotic imagery and often conjures up dark, dream-like visions influenced by gothic and hippie cultures, Black Sabbath, spiritism and diary-art. Langendorff’s work is both minimal and psychedelic with a free, stream of conscious sensibility. Included in the show are three collaborative pieces with artist and band-mate, Jason Glasser. The title of the series ‘Goddess Fuzz Fantasy’ originated from a line of one of Langendorff’s poems.

During the exhibition, Langendorff will reside in New York to present a series of lectures and performances at the Howard Street gallery. For updates on these events, please see: www.50howardstreet.com.
