March 27th - April 26th, 2015
SIGNAL is proud to present Autokorrekt, an exhibition of new sculpture by Sophie Hirsch, and the artist's first solo presentation in New York.
Autokorrekt sees Hirsch expanding upon a sculptural practice that has long focused on the wedding of organic forms and synthetic materials, with particular attention to the sensual properties of tension and texture. In a representative work, milky polycarbonate sheets are rubber-strapped or tacked against a wall with PVC piping, bowing out against their own weight and draped in bubbling black silicone.
Hirsch's densely layered sculptures, comprised of manufacturing materials and scaled at human-size, leave impressions both viscerally biological and brutally alien--like glimpsing the inner workings of a beehive or animal carcass.
Join us for an opening reception Friday, March 27th, 7-10pm.
Generous support for this exhibition has been provided by the Austrian Cultural Forum New York.
