Tanya Bonakdar Gallery debuts Laura Lima’s second solo exhibition with the gallery and her first in Los Angeles, titled “Six Feet Over,” on view from November 6, 2021 through January 22, 2022.
A play on the common phrase “six feet under” — a measurement used in funerary contexts to contain the spread of infection – the exhibition considers the opposite, focusing on living matter, nature, and materials suspended in fluctuation.
On view are three distinct, but related bodies of work that contemplate transitory moments between oscillating states of being. By exploring the threshold between light and dark, matter changing from solid to gas, empty homes waiting for their occupants, and the transformation of drawings into three-dimensional forms, Lima hones in on shifting states, which define the exhibition’s conceptual framework.
