DUVE Berlin is pleased to present Alpha Wave, the third solo exhibition of new works on paper and video by Brooklyn based artist Evan Gruzis.

When the eyes are closed, before reaching somnolence, the brain experiences some of its strongest signals – Alpha Waves. In this exhibition, Evan Gruzis focuses on the the conflation of this physio-meditative state and the subliminal aesthetic that it achieves. The oscillation between full awareness and unconsciousness is the point of departure for Gruzis’ Alpha Wave.
