Jennifer Cohen at Salon 94 Freemans

From January 22 through February 25, faculty member Jennifer Cohen’s sculptures are being featured in Grey Lines in Formation, her first solo exhibition at Salon 94 Freemans here in New York City. The show’s press release contains a good description of the works on display:

The exhibition will consist of grey, angular sculptures arranged in a linear and rhythmic formation. The sculptural lines stand in for limbs, while dance shoes, bronze fingers, and cast white toes serve as fragmented costumes. Like three-dimensional drawings in space, the sculptures plot an animated formation that shifts positions as the viewer circles the works. The shapes are variations on a theme, akin to both musical variations and transformations of geometric forms and patterns.

The sculptures are particularly striking for the way in which they seem to take on different moods and attitudes as one walks around them and encounters their various details.

Born in New York, Jennifer received an MFA in sculpture from the Yale University School of Art in 2000. In addition to Salon 94, she has also exhibited her work at White Columns, NY; The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center at Vassar College, Poughkeepsie [L]; Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac, Salzburg [L]; Anton Kern Gallery, NY [L]; and in Creative Time’s Strange Powers [L].
