This event has ended.

Rachel Uffner Gallery presents Body Double, Bianca Beck’s third solo exhibition with the gallery.

Initially inspired by political protests-the swell of their mass and voice- these works made over the past year consider the expansion of the individual in relation to collectivity, expression, creativity, and partnership. Beck alludes to a myth from Plato’s Symposium which posits that our original forms were bodies doubled. Each congenitally tied to a partner, bodies were the size and strength of two. Charged with the power of wholeness, these beings were celebratory, acrobatic, and prone to revolt.
