Amy Landesberg: Things Grow Hair - Artist's talk/reception
Biological systems are hard to control. Domestic ecosystems, those countless things at the backs of drawers, on shelves, in closets, in the garage, that won’t go away… What happens to them? Things Grow Hair turns the Moon Gallery into a display of bio-uncertainty as artist Amy Landesberg wonders about refuse and decay. Like much of her work, Things Grow Hair is informed by color, materiality, and the transformation of objects into feminized forms.
