D’Amelio Terras, New York
November 19 – December 23, 2011
D’Amelio Terras is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by Heather Rowe.
Featuring wall-based works, the exhibition represents a shift in scale from Rowe’s larger installations. While her previous sculptures addressed social space and dislocation, immersing the viewer in a quasi-cinematic experience, the new structures investigate the more personal form of the domestic mirror. In these wall pieces, she continues to employ strategies that allude to the space of architectural models, but the scale and material invite a one-to-one relationship with the viewer. The mirror’s surface and frame are inverted, creating complex layers in which reflections are oblique or obscured. The hybridity of these constructions suggest multiple interpretations. A white textured wallpaper completely covers one of the gallery walls, adding a subtle complement to the exhibition.
