"reCovered" at frosch&portmann

Jessie Henson

I am thrilled to participate in a summer group show based on collage at frosch&portmann in New York City. It's a five person show and we're all cut and pasting the body, reshifting identity.

frosch&portmann is pleased to present “reCovered”, a group exhibition with Rafael Grassi, Jessie Henson, Eva Lake, Thomas Lowe and Garrett Pruter.

Opening reception: Thursday, June 30 from 6 - 8PM

53 Stanton Street, New York, NY 10002
Summer hours: Wed - Sat, Noon - 6PM
June 30 - August 21, 2011

"reCovered" brings together artists working with materials originally not intended for painting, gluing or cutting: Magazines, family photographs, shooting practice targets. The artists in the exhibition recombine and reinterpret their original found material and thus create a whole new imagery — a recovered picture.

The works in the show play with the disappearance and fragmentation of the human figure; heads are covered with paint, faces pasted over, whole bodies cut out.
