Edel Assanti Offsite - Oren Pinhassi - The Crowd
Edel Assanti presents an off-site exhibition of ten new sculptures by Pinhassi at St Cyprian's church over the course of Frieze week.
The Crowd is comprised of a group of freestanding sculptures which on first impression channel bodies: looming just above human height on spindly legs, their slotted torsos are suggestive of ribcages; protrusions here and there resolve in the composition as feet, breasts, or buttocks; holes widen on their surfaces like eye sockets; panes of glass recede into the shade of an arch like featureless faces. These initial cues give way to a pattern of erotic transmutation in which object, architecture and body flow seamlessly into one another in borderless free association.
The spectacular Victorian church presents a dramatic context for a new body of work created by Pinhassi during his Outset Residency in London this summer.
