Tamara Kostianovsky: Savage Legacy
March 13, 2021 - August 22, 2021
In this mid-career survey, Latinx artist Tamara Kostianovsky presents an exhibition that closely examines the relationship between the landscape, the body, and violence through sculptural forms that transform slaughtering practices into values that embrace regeneration, sustainability, and rebirth. The exhibition includes Kostianovsky’s signature textile “meat” sculptures made with the artist’s own clothing, sculptures of birds composed of discarded upholstery fabrics, and recent forms that reference tree stumps and severed tree limbs. Savage Legacy reimagines the future of the landscape through an immersive environment composed of the remnants of consumer culture. This exhibition is sponsored by the Caroline R. Graboys Fund.
