This event has ended.

This is the artist’s first exhibition in New York since her show at Deitch Projects in 2001. It consists of three new sculptures, each masking a subtext of terrorist warfare. The installation explores an abject form of violence and entropy that marks an evolution of themes the artist has continued to investigate: the human condition and how the physical body and physical iconography are transformed through tragedy and human experience. The title of the exhibition, The Violent Bear It Away, references a novel by Flannery O’Connor exploring themes of destiny, destruction and redemption through a symbolic act of baptism, by violent drowning.
