Bryan Zanisnik explores the parts of the home, specifically, attics and basements, that are typically kept hidden and private. Zanisnik builds colorful and intricate tableaus of storage out of mundane bric-a-brac. The collection of objects speak to how the basement mirrors the human subconscious. Bryan Zanisnik was born in Union, New Jersey and currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. He received a B.A. from Drew University and an M.F.A. from Hunter College. He has exhibited and performed at The Brooklyn Museum, SculptureCenter, Smack/Mellon, MoMA PS1, the De La Cruz Collection and LAX Arts. Art21, part of their New York Close Up series, has produced three segments with Zanisnik. Recently exhibitions include the Queens Museum and a solo show at Locust Projects in Miami.
