[salonlb.] invites you to the opening reception of MATERIAL GIRLS: Materiality in a Material World, a group exhibition featuring the works of Théo Bignon, Molly Blumberg, Rachel Hefferan, and Parvin Peivandi, on Friday, September 24th, from 6-11PM.
MATERIAL GIRLS explores the practices of Théo Bignon, Molly Blumberg, Rachel Hefferan, and Parvin Peivandi, an international cohort of material-based artists, who investigate material as a means to embody the human experience and communicate from an authentic, internal source. This is art of excess, an indulgence to craft and process. But do not confuse materiality for materialism. Materiality, “the quality or character of being material or composed of matter,” is distinct. Physicality impacts content, and subsequently meaning.
MATERIAL GIRLS: Materiality in a Material World deconstructs and reimagines domestic, intimate objects and unconventional raw material embedded with personal narratives and cultural codes, conveying feelings of sexuality, nostalgia, tension, desire, and transformation translated into material. Materiality in all its manifestations.
MATERIAL GIRLS: Materiality in a Material World runs from September 24 – November 19, 2021.
