On the Beach – Eben Kling – Book Release
April 13, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
On the Beach by Eben Kling is a collection of work two years in making that highlights the tender nature of relationship between father and son is now ready for the public eye. The following is an excerpt from Eben Kling’s artist statement on On The Beach:
“I cannot forget my roots in the studio and “showing” comics provides an interesting conceptual conundrum. How and why would you take a medium that is a private, personal form like a comic book and exhibit it in the public space that is the white cube gallery? This would seem to negate the emotional impact of the experience. This exhibition in turn, is an attempt to reconcile that tension. I would hope that providing a graphic space for the viewer to occupy while consuming the story and experiences contained in On the Beach will serve as a grounding, and slightly less austere environment to live in story.
This show, and this book serve as a testament to the whirring treachery, and inversely, the inviting prospect of change. “
