ALICIA ADAMEROVICH & SESSA ENGLUND | WILD OBJECTS
From October 31 to December 14, 2019.
A soft hollow in an armchair seat, the yellowed brittle leaves of dried sunflowers, sticky residue left on snake-skin boots, all hint at the curious propensity objects have to imbibe not only our movements, but also the way we live.
The objects depicted in Alicia Adamerovich’s (Brooklyn, USA) highly rendered graphite drawings and the ones chosen and taken care of in Sessa Englund’s (Los Angeles, USA) precarious sculptures are projected far beyond their meanings. These selected elements act as binding agents between the tangible world and the ethereal space, revealing pieces of the artists’ identities through the layering of metaphors.
The exhibition Wild Objects points towards a system within which the rationality of objects comes to grips with the irrationality of being, enabling the contradiction to open a door to new symbols of enchantment.
Vernissage on Thursday October 31, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
