‘Domestic Vicissitudes’ opens at Point of Contact Gallery Jan. 16
Point of Contact Gallery is hosting an opening reception for “Domestic Vicissitudes,” an exhibition by Analia Segal, on Jan. 16 during Th3 (The Third Thursday). The opening reception will take place from 6-8 p.m. and is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. “Domestic Vicissitudes” is on view Jan. 16-Feb. 21.
Composed of both a site-specific installation and a large-scale video projection, this exhibition navigates the porous boundaries among art, design and architecture, intertwining the conceptual, aesthetic and functional nature of the objects that compose the everyday scenarios we live in.
Artistic Director Pedro Cuperman describes Segal’s work in “Domestic Vicissitudes” as “shapes in constant motion that oscillate between the interior and the exterior, between diverse realities, a superposition of materials that transfigure themselves as they encounter and profane each other: the inside devours the outside and vice versa. They are at once individual forms and superpositions, linked in a constant exchange of frontiers formed by texts which, as they coexist, offer us their own version of art and, more importantly, of art’s metaphors. And they offer us something else: their own version of the world that surrounds us …”
Segal (b. 1967, Rosario-Argentina) is a Guggenheim fellow, and has received grants that include Pollock Krassner Foundation, New York Foundation for the Arts, Fundación Konex, Fundación Antorchas, Bienal de Diseño-Universidad de Buenos Aires and 100% Design. Her works have been exhibited extensively both nationally and internationally, as well as published in specialized magazines, catalogs and books. These include “Trienalle Design Museum,” “Historia del Diseño en la Argentina,” “Absoluut Architectuur,” “Made for love,” “Simply Material,” “Sex Design,” “Ultimas Tendencias,” “Restroom Design” and “Fragile.”
She graduated as a graphic designer from the University of Buenos Aires and received a master’s degree in art from New York University. She lives and works in New York City.
