Daniel Faria Gallery is pleased to present Bed Island, Nadia Belerique’s second solo exhibition with the gallery.
“Bed Island suggests an analogy between intimate psychological space and the artwork’s construction. Large water-jet cut steel frames dangling on the wall have the dimension of bed sheets (specifically the kind that get bunched up and tangled), or pieces of paper with torn edges. Freestanding steel sculptures punctuate the floor like headboards, or railings, or hurdles; their long shadows suggest it’s getting late. These elements anchor the room, to which are added photographs, each one contributing a subtly vertiginous experience to the exhibition. Looking at them gets the viewer unmoored, so to speak.”
