McDermott & McGough. Detail of Time Balls, 1921, 1988
Collection Bruno Bischofberger, Switzerland.
Artists David McDermott and Peter McGough carry their artwork into their physical world. Seduced by the past, the couple experiments with time by living in a ‘time bubble’ evocative of the Edwardian period. The duo explores the historical present, homoeroticism and sexuality in their exhibition I’ve Seen the Future and I’m Not Going by pushing aside the present for the past, reviving unexpected dramas, and transcending historical traumas.
David McDermott was born in 1952 in Hollywood, California. He lives and works in Dublin, Ireland. Peter McGough was born in 1958 in Syracuse, New York. He lives and works in New York.

Kiki Smith’s Mortal addresses universal aspects of the human condition. Titled after a series of woodcut prints that depict the final stages of her mother’s life, Mortal couples Smith’s own mortality, spirituality, and her unexpected sources of inspiration. Inspired by the 18th century silk embroidery by Prudence Punderson, Smith’s Pilgrim (an installation comprised of 30 glass panels) examines the narrative of a woman’s life—infancy, adulthood, and death. The work in Smith’s Mortal encourages viewer introspection for the transmission of meaning.
Kiki Smith was born in 1954 in Nuremburg, Germany. She lives and works in New York.
