This Single Monument

This Single Monument was artist Luke Stettner’s first institutional solo exhibition, which included sculpture, photography and works on paper. A writer himself, Stettner took the title of the show from a poem by John Ashbery and in another work displayed a letter made up of correspondence by William Carlos Williams that considered large-scale questions of life and death alongside banal observances. Taking these concerns as central themes in the show, Stettner’s alternatively spare and crude sculptural objects reflected on the inexhaustible passage of time, while their austere serial forms tempered an overt sentimentality and veiled his deeply personal and emotional experiences with fear, doubt and self-reflexivity. This exhibition was curated by Lumi Tan.
