About

In his performances, figurative sculptures, and drawings, Dan Herschlein (b. 1989, Bayville, NY) stages psychological tableaux that evoke feelings of isolation, anxiety, and a fracturing of the self. His often life-size sculptural and relief works are meticulously crafted using cast plaster as well as common carpentry and furniture-making materials such as wood, joint compound, and wax. The fragmented spaces he creates suggest the uncanny atmosphere of nightmares, merging markers of domesticitysofas, tables, recliners, and windowswith human figures or wandering body parts to underscore how furniture, architecture, and bodies can all serve as vessels of memory and witnesses of loss.

Herschlein will present a new installation in the window of the New Museum’s 231 Bowery building. His project joins a new series of window installations that relaunches a program the New Museum originally mounted in the 1980s.
