From the press release:
"Set to open March 3rd,?Dactyl Foundation presents "After the Party," an exhibition featuring the art and photography of Jeremy Kost. The show is curated by Tim Goossens of P.S. 1. Known on the New York circuit as ?the Polaroid artist,? Kost creates art with his tried and true Polaroid camera. His Polaroids are about power and desire; whether it is obtained or not, the works presented lend to the notions of instant gratification, restraint and the overall fulfillment of desires."....
"The results of the photo sessions take the form of one-of-a-kind Polaroid grids and collages. The Polaroid images allow for instant gratification thanks to their quick development, but at the same time the observer is left with a certain craving. Certain of the artist?s feelings, they are perfectly conveyed in the essence of the Polaroids:??he is at once self-involved and far-removed.???The offhand whirr-whirr-whirr of Polaroids - push, click, eject; push, click, eject - ideally suits them to be parts of greater photographic wholes: rectangular tessellations in many-eyed mosaics.
