I WAS HERE, 2019
LOCATED ON LEVEL 3

Lara Schnitger’s work crosses the boundaries of installation, sculpture, fashion, architecture and collage with her practice being rooted in the interplay of ‘soft’ and ‘hard’ elements. She uses rigid materials such as wood and resin in combination with leather, fur, silk, cotton and Lycra. Made from materials traditionally associated with female labor, these works often double as protest signs and incorporate text that champions feminist viewpoints. Lara Schnitger is represented by Anton Kern Gallery and Grice Bench.

Kipsy (1)(2)(3), 2019
LOCATED ON LEVEL 4

Serban Ionescu blurs the boundary between sculpture and design: his work stems primarily from the automatic act of drawing. Ionesu’s loose instinctual line and vibrant pops of color expand into a sculptural collage/assemblage. These pet-like objects, shaky and skewed, poetically and playfully collapse gesture into form.
