Known for her large scale installations, Orly Genger most commonly uses discarded rope to painstakingly hand knot monumental sculpture. She describes the process as physically challenging and an important part of making her work. In 2012, Genger began working in casting aluminum and bronze pieces. The works are more intimate in size. The cast sculptures reference both of her large scale rope pieces as well as her very detailed drawings and collages of superhero limbs. Genger’s work can be found in many private and public collections including MoMA, The Whitney Museum of American Art, Hood Museum of Art, Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Indianapolis Museum of Art, Yale University Art Gallery, Hammer Museum of Contemporary Art and SFMoMA among others.
