AMY NATHAN: OBJECTS AS HANDWRITING & MANI PEDI – LOCAL LANGUAGE
September 28 - November 30
New Exhibitions by Amy Nathan
This body of work references small mechanisms that are everyday connectors and disrupters. Paper clips, noisemakers, saw blades, fishing weights, heating coils, locks, straps, and ropes operate like letterforms to write an idea into the space. These are objects that bend towards bodies and language, as a word leans towards the thing itself, without inhabiting its exact likeness.
Amy Nathan explores the relationship between representation and reality in her multifaceted drawing, sculpture, and installation-based practice. She asks questions about how meaning can be expressed through visual languages, guided by ideas such as the gendered nature of politics and power, classical mythology and contemporary literature, and the body’s visceral reaction to its environment.
