Country Instrument at AHN|VHS, Opening Friday, November 6th, 6-10pm

Country Instrument

November 6 - 28, 2009
Opening: Friday, November 6th, 6 - 10pm

AHN|VHS presents new sculpture and works on paper by Eric Veit. This body of work features readymade materials and studio ephemera repositioned and reconsidered outside of their intended states and uses. Placed within the gallery these objects are imbued with a new aura and alternate function. At the center of Veit's installation is his "Country Instrument", a homemade instrument composed of bottle caps which cover a large stick. "The country instrument (is) the object that you just give to the most unskilled person in a group of musicians." Says Veit, "The instrument is an object of very minimal means and serves as a record.."

Eric Veit lives and works in Philadelphia. His work was most recently included in Vox V at Vox Populi, Philadelphia, PA. He has also exhibited at Gallery TK in Northhampton, MA, The Harold Johnson Gallery at Hampshire College in Amherst, MA, and at The Norfolk Gallery at Yale University, Norfolk, CT. Veit received his BA from Hampshire College in 2008, and attended Yale Summer School of Music and Art in 2007. He was awarded the Ellen Battell Stoeckel Fellowship from Yale University in 2007.
