ALPHA & On Stellar Rays

Maria Petschnig Born to Perform performance still ALPHA & On Stellar Rays

Alpha & is an exploration of the body and the body in time. The exhibition proposes, or questions, transient acts and their permanence in the physical world.

Press Release

In Alpha &, traces of the figure are evident in physical depictions of the human form (heads, hands, torsos), handcrafted efforts (stitching, burning, molding, welding, collage), and physically imposing sculptural works. Disembodiment and disintegration of the figure contradict a fixed physicality and singularity visible in each work. Here, the reimagination of the body, together with endlessly renewable narrative possibilities, signals a new means for permanence, survival, and perseverance. 

With works by Ana Cardoso, Anya Gallaccio, Yasue Maetake, Maria Petschnig, Tia Pulitzer, Kirstine Roepstorff, Clare Stephenson and Stacy Lynn Waddell.
