CHIMENTO CONTEMPORARY, Los Angeles
Fresh off Now Be Here #4, LA/DC/MI/NY, Kim Schoenstadt tackles the dialectical relationship of Context v. Perspective in a series of new mixed media works which continue the artist’s investigations into the mechanisms and iconography of perceived experience. Using her signature language of symbolic architectural imagery and spatially engaged installation, Schoenstadt has devised a body of work addressing the tensions between context (the whole picture of cultural and greater sociopolitical relations) versus perspective (the subjective individual view). These works will be exhibited on the outside wall of Schoenstadt’s presentation.
On the subject of public enactments of architecture and complicated spaces, this year Chimento Contemporary and Kim Schoenstadt plan a single large wall drawing where viewers pull and anchor the twine of perspective lines, and will continue to do so throughout the duration of the fair. Like Kusama’s sticker obliterations, Exercise in Perspective #3 involves the audience in the creative and execution process, deepening their understanding of her process, whereas in previous iterations the artist has done them herself and offered the environment completed. This is a site specific installation that will only be seen at VOLTA NY 2018.
Chimento Contemporary also presents Margarethe Drexel, Statement about Height, Depth and Circumstance at the VOLTA VIDEO WALL
