David Ellis: Dozens at Roebling Hall
Roebling Hall is pleased to present it's first solo exhibition of new work by New York-based artist David Ellis, entitled Dozens. The title of this exhibition, taken from the slang "playing the dozens" to describe good-natured verbal sparing, is more than just a piece of poetic musing. David Ellis does, in fact, make trash talk, or at least makes it sound funky and he uses language and cadence as integral parts of his art making. Weaving rhythm, cultural landscape, conceptual art, a variety of collaborators and a myriad assortment of materials, Ellis's art evokes both the participatory spirit of Allan Kaprow- watch and see what happens- and the mechanical wonderment of Jean Tinguely.
