I WAS HERE, 2019
LOCATED ON LEVEL 3

Lara Schnitger’s work crosses the boundaries of installation, sculpture, fashion, architecture and collage as she interplays “soft” and “hard” elements—wood and resin in combination with leather, fur, silk, cotton and Lycra, for example. By incorporating materials traditionally associated with female labor, her work often doubles as protest signs, with text that champions feminist viewpoints. She 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.

Combing Season,
2019 LOCATED ON LEVEL 4

Born to an architect father and a mother who liked to sew and make puppets, Misaki Kawai seems to have absorbed the talents of both. The unique result maintains an innocent, honest integrity of adolescent playfulness, but on a grand level. Using a visual language that is influenced by East and West, Kawai combines humor with tragedy, reality with dream, conflict with harmony. She is represented by The Hole in New York, V1 Gallery in Copenhagen and Take Ninagawa in Tokyo.
