"Adversaries, Inc.," Sean Paul's 2017 solo show at David Lewis, staged investigations into flawed systems, those that are deeply ingrained in our everyday lives. The artist delved into the conditioning of the human mind through the technological systems we use on a daily, often minute-by-minute, second-to-second basis to communicate, create, entertain, study, protest, promote are derived from centralized, authoritarian systems of organization. Paul looks at the atomic bomb and the adversarial culture that arose with it. "88.8888, 88.8888," his most recent solo show at Christian Andersen gallery in Denmark, Paul continued his examination into technology as a frame of reference, analyzing GPS in relation to larger and even more abstract systems such as World Geodetic System and Coordinated Universal Time.
Born 1978 Salt Lake City, Utah, Paul received his MFA from Columbia in 2005. He currently lives and works in New York, where he is represented by David Lewis gallery. In addition shows at David Lewis, his work has been featured internationally at the Whitney Museum of American in New York, the Hessel Museum of Art in New York, and at Art Basel in Switzerland, among others.
