(Extra)ordinary: Reimagining the Everyday
January 6 - February 26Free
Elizabeth Leach Gallery is pleased to present (Extra)ordinary: Reimagining the Everyday, a group exhibition of artworks inspired by observations and reinterpretations of the familiar. The show features artists who challenge preconceptions of the commonplace through unexpected visual interventions in sculpture, video, photography and works on paper.
The exhibition includes an early Nari Ward sculpture, Woman, made of repurposed hoses that exemplifies his re-contextualization of found objects to confront social and political issues. Louise Bourgeois’ Autobiographical Series prints read like intimate notebook musings of daily life and motherhood through symbolic imagery and figuration. New photographs by Isaac Layman and recent drawings by Mario Gallucci reflect on the domestic realm through interior scenes that reveal something transcendent inside the quotidian. Malia Jensen’s short video Python, is an uncanny, meditative elegy to a housefly, while Claire Cowie and Leo Berk’s delightful sculptural collaboration, Endless Hug, made from repurposed materials, was inspired by ancient Byzantine niches.
