Polly Apfelbaum Exhibitions

polly_apfelbaum


Ikon is pleased to announce an exhibition of new work by New York-based artist Polly Apfelbaum, running from 19 September – 18 November 2018

Her use of various fabrics – stained and dyed – and more recently glazed ceramics, is beguiling and refreshing in its offerings of simple pleasures. In this way, Apfelbaum subtly assumes a political, and feminist, position, challenging pomposity, notions of entitlement and hierarchies in cultural practice – against “high” fine art – to suggest an egalitarianism in society across the board.

Concerned to strike a balance with those encountering her work, Apfelbaum explains:
“It's important to me that people have to move through the works so the spectator activates it and participates in the experience. As you move, the colour and the nap of a fabric change and the work plays a lot with light. I am always working with site, scale and the architectural setting.” Polly Apfelbaum
