THESE LACUSTRINE HOMES, a group show featuring work by Valentin Carron, Isabelle Cornaro, Karin Gulbran, Matthew Lutz-Kinoy, and Mai-Thu Perret—curated by Perret—is now on view at David Kordansky.
Investigating “disparate ideas of art history, including a covert conceptualism,” the artists “draw loosely from religious iconography and its traditions, as well as European artistic movements.”
The works converge, however, in their exploration of the tension between domestic materiality on one hand and a biomorphic, dream-like strangeness on the other. This becomes a way for the artists to consider the intrinsic life force of the art object and the evasive past of each form.*
Through March 6.
