Oh Man! Just found out Greg Zhena is having a show at Spao tomorrow evening.
I won’t lie, the reason I went to spao is because of this guy. I have never met someone who’s brain works the way it does. He’s by far the most interesting character/artist out there.
Be sure to check it out, here is his artist statement:

i said house not home is a collection of photographic images by Greg Zenha and two films by Zenha in collaboration with Jeremy Shantz.
Greg Zenha is a photo-based artist working primarily with large format cameras, bridging traditional as well digital printmaking practice. His work investigates conceptual realism through the lens of personal experience.
In this work Zenha explores the emotional space inhabited by a man trapped in the wake of past events. The series stresses the effect without representing the cause. Humility, humiliation, self-punishment, and endless self-analysis intersect and conspire against the experience of the present.
i said house not home is grounded by a letter, but the person who may have written, or received it is not important. What remains is an ineffable emotional atmosphere, a guest that cannot be asked to leave.
