Stranger Factory Presents: Brandt Peters x FERG – ‘TRIGGER’ 1.6

Alrighty folks … you’ve seen the teasers, you’ve read of the ass-kicking insanity that is currently unfolding in Albuquerque and Austin … now here is some more candy for the eyeballs and the ‘officially official’ details from the man himself, Mr. Brandt Peters:

Stranger Factory art space is proud to present “TRIGGER” a two-person exhibition by artists Brandt Peters and Clay Ferguson (aka FERG). Both artists explore the ideas and personification of a trigger… that initiator that precipitates a reaction whether literally or metaphorically, whether on behalf of destruction or protection… What’s the target?

Hot damn. TRIGGER is set to tyrannize Stranger Factory Jan. 6th with a myriad of 2- and 3-dimensional works. For the first time we’ll get to see these two reinterpret each other’s toys and construct some of the most menacing customs to date. More insight to emerge with the artist profiles, so keep checking back!

TRIGGER runs through Jan. 30th, 2012, with an opening reception from 6pm to 9pm. Both artists will be in attendance.
