NXTHVN: Un/Common Proximity

The newest Feature on the 2020-2021 NXTHVN Artist cohort follows Ilana Savdie, as she discusses her depictions of the human body in her work. Savdie describes the human body as "an inconvenience" in its failure to conform to culturally-imposed standards and restrictions. Savdie embraces this defiance, emphasizing the abjectness of the human body through texture and color, in an effort to transcend the constraints of physical form.

Ilana Savdie's work Entreñadas is on view in Un/Common Proximity at James Cohan through August 13, 2021.
