Lisa Kellner's "Surfacing Beneath" at Brooklyn Arts Council Gallery
Up through January 16th, Lisa Kellner's installation 'Surfacing Beneath' will transform throughout the course of this exhibition.
Surfacing Beneath is a site-specific installation that will evolve over time by Brooklyn-based artist Lisa Kellner. Kellner incorporates wall drawing with sculpture made from silk and pigments, exploring patterns of disease and cellular structure and its relation to human behavior.
In Kellner's hands, silk becomes a bodily landscape of organ like forms. For Surfacing Beneath, these forms adapt to the architecture of the space, creeping along walls and pipes. Here, Kellner’s work proposes an alternative to that which cannot be seen but is known to exist and grow underneath the skin.
This dynamic installation will evolve over the course of the 16 week exhibition as the artist returns to the gallery often to add to the work. Sept 25– Jan 15.
The Brooklyn Arts Council is located in DUMBO, at 111 Front Street, Suite 218
Regular gallery hours are Monday - Friday 10am - 5pm
