Anne Yafi and Christalena Hughmanick: There’s Nothing Natural About This

@ Wedge Projects

1448 W Howard St, Chicago IL 60626

Opening Saturday, February 3rd, from 6PM - 9PM

On view through Friday, February 16th

The site specific installation work There’s Nothing Natural About This by Chicago artists Anne Yafi and Christalena Hughmanick looks at the spacial and temporal relationships between nature, architecture, the body and ownership of space. Yafi’s three-dimensional grid drawing makes subtle attempts in subverting its art historical origin through her use of a tactile craft material (pipe cleaners) and the intuitive application of color, while rejecting a narrative or sequential reading of any kind. Hughmanick’s quilted components take aesthetic cues from the ancient Roman architecture of Aquincum, using its slow deterioration over the past 2000 years to consider the relationship between human building and nature. Material choices reinterpret ancient building material and the level of function presented in the resulting works aims only to be graphic.
