Ethan Breckenridge (1977 – WI/USA) is an artist living and working in NY, earned his BFA from the School of Visual Arts, and MFA from Columbia University. Exhibited internationally and has produced projects in, Berlin Germany, Santa Cruz Bolivia.
Ethan’s work is interested in the presentation and rhetoric of social systems: transitory places and objects, office plants, hallways, shelving units, filing structures and architectural motifs. All facilitating a stylized encounter with the everyday, where the literal and metonymic locate and emphasize the metaphoric. Becoming an intermediary through which the intention, and path, of discourse becomes visible. In the end, the work never exclusively becomes a representation of an experience, or a literal object, rather, the division and displacement of both.
