Artist: Beverly Semmes Exhibition Title: Rabbit Hole Exhibition Dates: 4 February 2016 - 12 March 2016 Gallery Link: http://www.inglettgallery.com/exhibit... Video Link: https://youtu.be/lzc0kgnB5R0 Susan Inglett Gallery is pleased to present Rabbit Hole, an exhibition of new work by Beverly Semmes, from 4 February to 12 March 2016. A reception for the artist will be held Thursday evening 4 February, from 6 to 8 PM. Beverly Semmes’s second exhibition with Susan Inglett Gallery probes the powers of a landmark modernist sculpture by an iconic feminist artist: Meret Oppenheim’s Object (aka the fur lined tea cup) of 1936. As Semmes heads down the rabbit hole of artistic inspiration she takes artist Erle Loran’s 1943 book, Cezanne’s Compositions as her guide: Loran’s attempts to diagram and unlock the powers of Cezanne’s paintings are a touching artifact of pure formalism and ardor. How to get closer to an object that inspires—the art one loves—is a profound and perverse question at the heart of this installation.
