Anat Ebgi debuted a new exhibition titled “Look Out “ by Alec Egan on May 21, 2022. The exhibition will runs through June 25, 2022. Remember to check with the gallery for up-to-date covid protocols and guidelines – (proof of vaccination and masks MAY be required).
This exhibition, “Look Out “and Egan’s concurrent solo presentation for Art Basel Hong Kong (May 26 -29), inversely titled “Out Look,” continue the artist’s sequence of exhibitions that depict a new portion of a singular imagined home. Drawn from his own memory and imagination, the fictitious interiors, and vast atmospheric landscapes speak to tropes of nostalgia, Americana, and the profundity of the mundane.
Egan’s large interiors, decorated with lavish floral patterns, repeatedly use typical domestic items such as furniture, books, and footwear as symbolic motifs that harken back to personal histories while conjuring hypothetical narratives about the absent residents. In the smaller works, object motifs reappear, such as the bowl of spaghetti in Bowl of pasta with flower poster, or the mirrored palms in Green room (waiting room), and underscore a reflective tone in the exhibition, adding emphasis to these symbolic gestures within the works.
On view: May 21 – June 25, 2022
