In his solo exhibition Ejecta, Cervino’s sculptures mediate self-perceived mediocrity with evidence of sincere effort. The work in the exhibition, including large-scaled constructions, small cast bronzes, assemblages of found objects, as well as an accompanying book, reflects his personal trajectory and a keen awareness of art-historical precedents. At once, this exhibition serves as a device for the fantasy of grandeur, a critique of the gauge of artistic success, and an acknowledgement of lived and limited real experiences. The melding of such personal and professional contemplation is expressed most succinctly in his collaboration on the exhibition with curator, art historian, and spouse, Shannon Egan.
