Peninsula Art Space is pleased to announce Conjunctions, a group exhibition presented in collaboration with Residency Unlimited and curated by Rachel Valinsky. Featuring Heather Dewey-Hagborg, Jonas Weber Herrera, Andreas Savva, and Kato Six, Conjunctions presents new works developed over the course of their residencies as well as past works shown for the first time in New York.
Working across different media, Dewey-Hagborg, Weber Herrera, Savva, and Six gesture towards techniques of uncovering and concealing, projecting and laying bare, to compose bodies and populate space with forms. While Dewey-Hagborg and Weber Herrera’s works deal specifically with questions of gender and embodiment, Savva and Six explore the life of forms, revealing through subtle yet complex manipulations the relationship of objects to their surrounding environment.
