For her third solo show at the gallery, Vanessa Safavi proposes recent sculptural and photographic works, including these monochrome framed silicones, combined together with an image investigating the ephemerality of an event.
In her research, Vanessa is interested in the accidental and ephemeral nature of things and the observation of their natural particularities, like color. Safavi takes The Breeder’s surprising architecture as a tool using the corners, the wide openings and the lower parts to emphasize the space ’s own narration.
The series of assemblages of different materials such as concrete, wood, plaster and layers of colored silicone strips result from working within a limited field of materials and actions, which the artist collects around her home or while traveling.
