Marian Goodman Gallery presents Work Desk for an Ambassador’s Wife, an exhibition by Nairy Baghramian and Janette Laverrière. The exhibition will present sketches, drawings and maquettes of Baghramian’s works from 1999 to the present that are not intended to be realized, as well as a major collaborative project with Janette Laverrière, and a new related sculpture. Nairy Baghramian’s sculpture and installations have made reference to the history of interior architecture as a means to interrogate ideological norms and reformulate and reposition object making. Embracing antecedents for whom the concept of the installation has played a central role in design and object-making provides a productive tension for the artist, a platform for innovation and new possibilities within sculpture. Baghramian’s reengagement with key maverick histories includes purposeful collaborations which activate the potential of objects and the thresholds they occupy, and brings to light the political, philosophical and institutional contingencies of these spaces. I am always concerned with contradictions and confrontations [in my collaborations] and the resulting debates in a shared space rather than with symbiosis or appropriation. -Nairy Baghramian, 2019
