This event has ended.

Part 1 In Part 1 of this exhibition, the sculptures allude to a human form removed, but essential to the making or identity of each of the artist’s works. The works disrupt the viewer’s subjectivity, allowing them into the familiar prosthesis of tools and sensual forms, replacing it with the artist’s presence or own subjectivity in a cycle of give and take. Structured around ideas of both absence and hyper-presence, each artist touches on profoundly human presences, or the implications of presences, as a smokescreen for other, more complex concepts such as memory, perspective, loss, navigation, persistence, and touch.

Gentle oscillation between these two defining human qualities preventing access to and short-circuiting one another could be seen as a concept at work in the sculptures selected for these shows.

Too Full To Cry, a two part group exhibition featuring artworks by recent graduates of Yale University Sculpture. Presenting works that are for, about or of the human body or form, the show does not seek to unify the artists’ works into a single thesis, but rather showcase a selection from their diverse works and ideas at this particular moment in their practices. Crying, like a sense of fullness, is a uniquely human response that marries the physiological and the emotional, a simultaneous reaction of the self as well as an active signal to others.
