> DESCRIPTION

On Friday, September 25, BAC Gallery presents Surfacing Beneath, a site-specific installation that will evolve over time by Brooklyn-based artist Lisa Kellner. Kellner incorporates wall drawing with sculpture made from silk and pigments, exploring patterns of disease and cellular structures and its relation to human behavior.  

In Kellner's hands, silk becomes a bodily landscape of organ like forms.  For Surfacing Beneath, these forms adapt to the architecture of the space, creeping along walls and pipes.  Here, Kellner’s work proposes an alternative to that which cannot be seen but is known to exist and grow underneath the skin.

This dynamic installation will evolve over the course of the 16 week exhibition as Kellner returns to the gallery often to add to the work.
