Over the past three decades, Nairy Baghramian has delved into elements of sculptural practice and installation to create works that challenge their settings and upend expected modes of presentation as well as the architectural, sociological, political and historical contexts that inform them.

Baghramian has considered the relation of modeling, molding and casting - interrelated elements of sculpture production involving positive and negative forms, throughout her career, and she consistently humanizes this largely mechanical process through overt or oblique references to the body. Using an abstract vocabulary that often combines geometric and organic forms, as well as industrial materials and processes with elements that appear soft and supple, Baghramian highlights the subtle ligatures uniting disparate human activities and the vulnerability of the human body.

For her Nasher exhibition, Baghramian will create a new series of sculptures that explore the provisional body as the site of trauma by disrupting the habits of the conditioned eye. The sculptures will be presented in dialogue with works from the Nasher’s permanent collection.
