Through parallel practices of art and architecture, productive cross-pollination shapes the work of artist Marianne Desmarais. Techniques from architectural practice are applied in drawings and sculptures that attempt to alter space through the manipulation of form, optics, and surface. Utilizing manual and digital modes of production, resistance and collapse are explored as themes of structural response. Marianne works with geometry and material characteristics to visually amplify the relationships between constructive parts, media, and disciplines. Her works move off the surface of the gallery walls to approach the viewer physically, to push and pull space.
“There are certain categories that continue to repeat themselves, whether they be cars, buildings, or a certain exchange between people. You have the same sort of catalogue of gestures, a catalogue of moments, but they mean different things in all the different circumstances…” — Sarah Morris
“I am not interested in documentaries...I do not believe in any kind of objectivity.” - Sarah Morris
Why Is Everything A Rag is the first solo museum exhibition of the Stockholm-based artist Jockum Nordström in the Americas. Children’s books, jazz and blues vinyl covers, collages, drawings, paintings and paper sculptures collected from the start of his career through today, figure in a practice animated by and built of visual vernacular.
