Paul Branca: Couch Crash

About

Golden Parachutes is pleased to present Couch Crash, a painting distribution project by the American artist Paul Branca. Branca presents a series of text paintings that will be given away to his close friends in Berlin on a first come, first serve basis at the exhibition's vernissage on November 24th. What we are left with are three process-driven works resulting from the sessions' unused oil paint. They are layered over time: from the project's beginning to completion, and their diaristic function provides an honest invoicing of labour as painted document. These works will remain on view until the exhibition closes, and are available for sale. Couch Crash continues Golden Parachutes' dedication to supporting experimental approaches to artistic production, display, and dissemination and is a continuation of the gallery's interest in articulating alternative economic models for artistic exchange. Paul Branca was born in the Bronx and received his MFA from Bard College. Couch Crash is Branca's second painting distribution project. His past works range from hand painted phone cards distributed in the public realm in order to meet the neighbors, to paintings of his kitchen knives executed with metal paint, to be passed through airport security. Upcoming exhibitions include the group exhibition A Knot for Ariadne opening December 11th at Kavi Gupta, Berlin. In conjunction with the exhibition Golden Parachutes will produce a limited edition series of posters featuring several of the works given away, as well as a downloadable exhibition catalog featuring essays by Tim Pierson, Jenny Borland and Jess Wilcox. The catalog will be available on Golden Parachutes' website on December 1st.
