This playful and perceptive exhibition explores several major bodies of work by celebrated Brooklyn- and Berlin-based artist Nina Katchadourian, including video, photography, sculpture and sound installations. Katchadourian’s practice is at once conceptually rigorous and alluringly accessible. Her work reveals the creative potential, to use the artist’s words, that “lurks within the mundane” and underscores the remarkable freedom and productivity that can come from working within limitations. Using ingenuity and humor, her practice encourages us to reinvigorate our own sense of curiosity, and to see our everyday surroundings as a site of discovery and possibility.
