Through mid-September 2016
From Mythology to Robots
This exhibition will feature a new collection of sculpture constructed using wood and bronze, in which Fonssagrives-Solow explores the intersection of mythology and technology. Drawing from her signature aesthetic, these works delve into mythological traditions from around the world, including Greek and Māori deities and legendary figures from The Epic of Gilgamesh. In this exhibition, ancient legends are exhumed and reinvigorated through these pieces. At times playful and futuristic, at others minimal and stirring, this collection invokes ancient stories and powerful traditions.
