Chicago Artists’ Coalition is pleased to present ‘The Hall of Disappearing’, a solo show of new sculptural works by Jenny Kendler who presents a counterpoint to the view of nature as something to be possessed. She suggests instead, that it is we who are possessed by nature. Kendler uses delicacy, fragility, ornamentation and intricacy to echo the subtle and mysterious patterns of the living world.
Kendler is interested in de-and-re-constructing our clichéd abstractions of nature in order to reclaim something that belongs to us all. ‘The Hall of Disappearing’ attempts to create for us a visceral, bodily experience, seeking to reinvigorate our participation in the natural world…and re-sensitize us to its wonders.
There will be an opening reception on Friday, October 12 from 6-9pm, and the exhibition will run through November 1, 2012.
