The Sarabande New York Takeover: Camilla Hanney at Bergdorf Goodman
18 NOVEMBER - 20 DECEMBER
FIFTH AVENUE, NEW YORK
18 - 20 NOVEMBER
Faith, folklore and femininity - working through ceramics, sculpture and installation, Sarabande alumni and BOUND artist Camilla Hanney’s practice explores themes of time, sexuality, cultural identity and the corporeal, often referencing the body in both humorous and challenging ways.
By subverting traditional, genteel crafts she attempts to transgress and contemplate conventional modes of femininity, deconstructing archaic identities and rebuilding new figures from the detritus of the past. By materializing the familiar in an unfamiliar context Camilla stimulates our ability to rethink our relationship towards objects, threatening the natural order and toying with the tensions that lie between beauty and repulsion, curiosity and discomfort, desire and disgust.
