Marianna Simnett is presenting solo exhibition Lies at New York’s Seventeen gallery, opening November 20 and running from November 23 to January 22.
The London-based artist works with film, often weaving disparate yet connected narratives together to explore the contaminated body and the visceral reality of identity. Rooted in layers and histories, there’s often a violent undertone to most of Simnett’s work; a balancing act between constraint and subversion.
Simnett first screened the new film as part of the Serpentine Miracle Marathon (2016) in October and had a solo exhibition Valves Collapse at Seventeen Gallery London earlier this year.
