Matthew Stone

Outdoor Sculpture Installation, Poolside at the Mondrian

November 30 – December 5th, 2011

The Hole is pleased to announce a special outdoor sculpture installation by British artist Matthew Stone.

The exhibition will focus on the intersections between the ideas, photography and sculptures that define Matthew’s work. Four large photographic sculptures will be installed in the pool area that incorporate tangles of figures printed on wood and arranged into polygonal volumes.

Matthew was born in 1982 and graduated from Camberwell College of Arts, University of the Arts London with honors in painting. After leaving college he masterminded the art-collective-cum-scene !WOWOW! in squatted South-London buildings. Their group shows and parties in empty buildings attracted audiences of over 1500 people and a performance event at the Tate saw a record 4000 people in attendance. Recent solo exhibitions have been presented at V1 Gallery, Denmark; Galerie Paul Freches, Paris; Boyschool, London; Gea Politi, Milan, and Union Gallery, London. His first comprehensive exhibition in America is on view at The Hole, 312 Bowery, from November 1st – December 10th.

Recent photographic projects include a collaboration with Givenchy’s Ricardo Tisci for the cover of the 20th anniversary issue of Dazed & Confused magazine and a fold-out sculptural cover for the current Flaunt Magazine. He composes original music for close friend and collaborator, fashion designer Gareth Pugh’s shows and has directed music videos for acclaimed British bands These New Puritans, S.C.U.M and for New York lo-fi band No Bra.
