Opening Reception: Thursday June 9, 6–8 PM
Koenig & Clinton is pleased to announce Anna Sew Hoy: Invisible Tattoo, the artist’s first solo exhibition in New York since 2010. The exhibition features recent sculpture that continues to posit relationships between raw materials and found objects, bodies and environments, and temporality and permanence.
An interdisciplinary artist who frequently employs clay and clothing, Sew Hoy’s sculptures persistently explore material transformation in structure, function, and inversion. Reflectivity or makeshift apertures throughout Sew Hoy’s works create opportunities for viewers to catch a glimpse of themselves or others in the act of looking.
Invisible Tattoo suggests simultaneous presence and absence — an indelible mark imprinted into flesh that nonetheless remains unseen. On July 27, these connections will be elucidated through a performance and a reading by Dawn Kasper and Laurie Weeks.
