Yui Kugimiya and Fabienne Lasserre: Foreign Object
7/17/2010- 8/21/2010


Shunning the familiar and embracing the alien, Yui Kugimiya and Fabienne Lasserre dissect bodily conventions - human, animal and other. Kugimiya’s small paintings erupt with string and fur. They straddle the space between abjection and abstraction, exuding a delicate ooze that occasionally makes room for a cat to poke through. The contorted tentacles and rough surfaces of Lasserre’s polyrhythmic sculptures are layered with handmade-felt, paint, and paper; interweaving a tactile attention to material with a radical evisceration of the intuitive process.
