On View: Little Gloating Eve

November 14, 2014 - November 30, 2014

Little Gloating Eve
A solo exhibition by Beatrice Scaccia
with ceramics contributed by Toshiaki Noda
Curated by Jodi Waynberg

On View: November 14 – November 30, 2014
Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Sunday, 12-6pm

Cuchifritos Gallery + Project Space is thrilled to present Little Gloating Eve, a solo exhibition of recent work by Beatrice Scaccia. The evolution of an ongoing body of work, this installation acts as an immersion into the human condition, inviting us into the life of Scaccia’s central character, Eve. Rendering movements ranging from banal to absurd (cooking, dancing, listening to music, eating flowers), Scaccia uses the faceless Eve concealed in layers of grey clothing and padding, to construct a narrative of fragments and repetition in dilated time. A close emulation of dozens of simple, borrowed actions, Scaccia deconstructs these familiar gestures to build her own fiction — fixed in the pattern of a wallpaper, the loop of an animated gif, or the edges of a panel — revealing both the foolishness and wonder of our routines.

This is the second of three Workspace 2014 exhibitions, featuring the work of LES Studio Program artists-in-residence.
