Master Cleanse at Kate Werble

Rancourt/Yatsuk, Production Still From Master Cleanse, 2009

Kate Werble Gallery hosts Master Cleanse – a "revolutionary" two-day life-cleansing program – this Tuesday, August 4th, and Wednesday, August 5th. For the duration of the exhibition, artists Rancourt and Yatsuk invite guests to meet with specialists one on one for a first hand exploration of various "extreme tools" concerning modern wellness. The program embraces controversial new age methods, as well as the accompanying ambiguities and commercial issues. The gallery invites visitors to schedule appointments for either day, from 4 to 8 PM by e-mailing mastercleansereservations[at] Walk-ins are also welcome.

The artists, Justin Rancourt and Chuck Yatsuk, focus their work on “American leisure pastimes.” Rancourt/Yatsuk live and work in New York City.
