Pioneer Works will open a new exhibition, Amor Fation Saturday, September 14th in Red Hook, NY. Amor Fati brings together works from artists whose identity and practice shape an immersive look into Dionysian constructions. The works within this exhibition expose the many iterations of irrational human folly, destructive debauchery, primal intuition, ecstatic revelry, reckless exploit and sacrifice. 
 
Artists included in Amor Fati are David Armstrong, Maxime Ballesteros, Benjamin Degen, Zhivago Duncan, Richard Dupont, Martin Eder, Eloise Fornieles, Douglas Gordon, Loris Gréaud, Nir Hod, Michael Joo, Kika Karadi, John Miserendino, Yoko Ono, Angel Otero, Nicolas Provost, Matthew Stone, Stephen Tashijan, Mickalene Thomas, Andy Warhol, Graham Wilson, and Nick van Woert.

Pioneer Works is located at 159 Pioneer Street in Brookly, NY. Their gallery’s viewing hours are Wednesday - Sunday  from 12-6pm.

Adeline de Monseignat (b. 1987, Monaco)

Adeline de Monseignat lives and works in London. Themes around the body, fertility, sexuality and origin are recurrent in her’s practice, often dealt in her sculptures and installations with organic, sensual and fragile materials such as fur, coffee, eggshells, and wood, in order to let these materials do what the body itself does: yield to the damages of time.  With influences such as Meret Oppenheim, Louise Bourgeois, Eva Hesse and Gabriel Orozco, her work falls into a genre of sculpture known as ‘soft sculpture’. (via the artist's statement)

Monseignat received her MA in Fine Art with Distinction from City & Guilds of London Art School. Following her graduation, she has begun showing her work in the UK, America and Berlin. She recently completed a residency at Pioneer Works in Redhook, Brooklyn, and participated in a group exhibition titled Dead Inside at Bleecker Street Arts Club. Currently, her works are on view at Gerson Zevi in London as part of the exhibition The London Project, which will be on view through November 1, 2013.

This Sunday, August 4, Pioneer Works will be hosting a closing reception for their current exhibition by artist Earnest Caivano. The reception will feature an artist talk by Caivano, who will speak about and present his latest publication, Settlements. 

Caivano’s work has been the subject of solo shows at White Cube in London and at MoMA PS1, where his site-specific mural In the Woods(2004) is permanently installed in one of the building’s stairwells. He has also been included in notable group exhibitions such as No New Thing Under the Sun (2010) at the Royal Academy in London, The Compulsive Line: Etching 1900 to Now at the Museum of Modern Art (2006), Greater New York 2005 at MoMA PS1, and the 2004 Whitney Biennial.
