press: bárbara sánchez-kane: new lexicons for embodiment

kurimanzutto is pleased to present New Lexicons for Embodiment, Mexican artist and designer Barbara Sanchez-Kane's first solo exhibition at the New York space. Navigating the individual yet intertwined worlds of fashion and art, Sánchez-Kane considers the clothed body as the interface with which we experience the world and interact with reality, and examines how garments contribute to the interpretation of identity and personal expression.

Sánchez-Kane, who alternately uses the pronouns "she" and "he," is interested in the deconstruction of identities and the duality of the self presented: through her clothing and sculptures, there is a perpetual tearing and fracturing of structure (voids that seemingly should not exist) and the recurring reuse of traditional objects through the destruction of their functionality.
