Artist Glen Fogel presents My Apocalyptic Moment, an installation of video, paintings, and new work. In his art, Fogel simultaneously culls from popular media culture as he mines the territory of romantic and family relationships. The centerpiece of the exhibition, With Me… You, is a large-scale five-channel video installation that portrays his family’s wedding and engagement rings in the iconic style of the Home Shopping Network. The installation spans four generations from his great grandmother’s engagement ring to his sister’s wedding ring. Whether through meticulous re-creations of old love letters or by reanimating family heirlooms, Fogel deftly personifies individuals in the objects they own. His work lays bare private correspondence and intimate declarations, enlarging personal experience to a heroic scale.
