Fin Simonetti presented solo exhibition IS PATH WARM? at North Little Rock’s (Arkansas) Good Weather, which opened June 3 and is running to July 29.
The New York-based artist is most known for her red ink drawings, and has recently moved towards sculpture as well. Objects made of marble and cut-out floor works are strewn across the room, as if you are entering a moment of after. A dismembered dog becomes a metaphor or signifier to explore “the physical, psychological, and political destruction of the body.”
The leash traces an “unstable line between the body as a threat and as threatened,” opening up a dialogue to talk about vulnerability and neglect. Simonetti is also a musician, where you can hear her sounds here.
