Statement

Phoebe Grip hand weaves systems of nets and traps out of a variety of organic and inorganic materials. These complex systems play with a kind of implied gender narrative through predation. Nonfunctional and feminine, these ephemeral snare traps are designed for an impossible and imagined prey—traps for a desire that is a persistent absence. This work explores how we augment and distort our world through the context of gender, and hopes to expand upon our capacity to see materials both organic and manmade, in new ways.

Phoebe Grip is a Brooklyn based sculptural artist, originally from Peterborough, NH. Grip has most recently exhibited at BRIC House for the 2016 Biennial, Ortega y Gasset Projects, Re: Art Show in the Pfizer building, and the Wassaic Project’s Summer exhibition Appetite for Destruction. She has been awarded residencies and fellowships at the Vermont Studio Center, BRICworkspace in Brooklyn, and The Wassaic Project.
