Galleri Urbane presents Rachel Grobstein: "Ghost Stories" opening reception
Galleri Urbane will present Rachel Grobstein in her inaugural solo exhibition with the gallery. "Ghost Stories" presents the latest in an ongoing body of work comprised of small cut paper paintings and miniature sculptures. Expanding on the artist’s long-standing interest in memory and the accumulation of personal things and objects, this exhibition catalogues items that surround commemoration, grief, and celebration. From small scale roadside memorials to a cut paper scene of objects found in a cemetery, the work contemplates the act of memorializing in an era of mass production/hyper consumption.
Through her miniature and incredibly detailed objects, Grobstein invites intimate contemplation with a challenging subject matter. By drastically reconfiguring the way one encounters these scenes, the artist presents an archeology of things that exists in the everyday and beyond any divine connotations.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through March 28.
