VAGUE TERRAINS / URBAN FUCKUPS—a new show of richly textured paper-on-paper work by Francesca Gabbiani—is now on view in Los Angeles.
“Non-place, a book by French anthropologist Marc Augé, explored spaces of transience where individuals are anonymous—airport waiting rooms, hotel lobbies, railway stations. Gabbiani’s beautifully crafted works have recently focused on a different and special kind of space, of wilderness that one finds in today’s urban texture, in abandoned grounds and unattended interstices of the city.” — Paolo Colombo
