DESCRIPTION

An exhibition with recent works by Robert Kinmont and Doris Salcedo will open on June 26th. Salcedo’s A Flor de Piel (2013) was developed as a response to the simple but impossible task of making a flower offering to a victim of torture. By using thousands of rose petals, sewn together to resemble a fluid, skin-like surface, she has pushed to find the ‘limits of the fragile and the most delicate within the frame of sculpture’. Kinmont will show two sculptures, each employing a bundle of willow branches as a central structuring object. These works present examples of the artist’s interest in imbuing everyday objects with personal narratives. His 17 part photographic work My Favorite Dirt Roads (1969/2008) will also be exhibited.
