CIRCLE CULTURE GALLERY
THE SPACE BETWEEN: FIRST U.S. EXHIBITION BY AUSTRIAN CONCEPTUAL ARTIST, ANNELIESE SCHRENK
LOWER EAST SIDE GALLERY
MAY 12-17, 2015
OPENING: MAY 12, 5-8 PM
Circle Culture Gallery is pleased to present The Space Between, an exhibition of new works by Austrian conceptual artist, Anneliese Schrenk. This occasion marks the U.S. debut for the artist and the gallery.
The show will feature installations of Schrenk’s process-based paintings and sculptural pieces. Thematically and technically, her practice investigates the phenomenon of skin as a connector and delimiter between all beings, space and things.
Schrenk primarily works with thick, tanned cowhide called “Dry Cruft,” on which the scars, swelling and meridians of a living body are still subtly apparent. Factories often discard these types of hides due to their many natural features and processing errors made during manufacturing. As a result, imperfections like lines, furrows, scratches, and holes are recurring motifs in Schrenk’s work.
