Mille Kalsmose and Caroline Silverman revisit fleeting memories and past experiences through the use of tactile materials. Family structures and notions of home appear throughout their practices. Using fiber-based materials in different ways, both artists explore the sentimentality of textiles.
Join Kalmose and Silverman for an opening reception of their Features installation, with refreshments and music. The artists introduce their works, shedding light on their exploration of fiber-based materials and themes relating to the past and family.
Some works on view are available for purchase.
Mille Kalsmose is a Danish artist based in Copenhagen and New York. Her work spans from image to sculpture and installation, materializing what is invisible to the eye. She explores the architecture of memory, identity, psychological mechanisms, and spiritual life conceptions, creating a union of the unconfined in highly tactile manifestations.
There is a familiarity and tangibility in our relationship to textiles, especially those passed down between generations. With inherited items come narratives of things left behind. In the same way captions on family photos or highlighter streaks across printed work provide context atop general information, Caroline Silverman’s work performs the act of annotating a space by claiming ownership over the act of experiencing an object.
