Amalia Pica at Marc Foxx


Marble once stood as bodies, now here the prosthetics that infer the body. The space the sculptor once removed has become the more common cultural object. Like formalist lessons in negative space, the vacillation of passive/active object has significance, and metaphorical overtones towards all forms of speaking vs listening, active bodies passive bodies, protests and police: things inform their opposite, and we become the other, create it. etc. etc. etc.

Further inference of bodies by the objects that matter: Park McArthur at ChisenhaleKlara Lidén, Alicia Frankovich at KuratorNairy Baghramian at Marian GoodmanYngve Holen at Kunsthalle Basel
