Between Wounds and Folds draws together threads from the past fifteen years of Tamara Kostianovsky’s work and career, connecting issues of gender-based violence, personal memory, and ecological destruction through consumption, to create a complex and speculative ecosystem. Her soft, brutal sculptures combine discarded fabric with industrial materials, often borrowing forms from mutilated fauna and flora in various states of decay, including tree stumps, cow carcasses, and birds of prey. This exhibition gathers four distinct bodies of work that explore two overlapping formal and conceptual constructs suggested by the title: the wound and the fold. Kostianovsky viscerally positions plant and animal forms in relation to human bodies, connecting the destruction of the earth by consumer waste to bodily harm.
