Fin Simonetti

The absent abyss between the living + the death in Fin Simonetti’s LIFEMORTS at Interstate Projects, Nov 10 – Dec 17

8 November 2017

Fin Simonetti is presenting solo exhibition LIFEMORTS at New York’s Interstate Projects, opening November 10 and running to December 17.

There is no indication or press release as to what the show will be, but the New York-based artist often works across mediums in sculpture, drawing, video, performance and is also a sound artist, where her music can be found here.

Her work often pits itself between extremes and emotions; polarized between agony and ecstasy, violence and care, ambiguous and coherent to unpick power structure, domination and oppression and its effect on the body.

You can view documentation from a recent solo exhibition IS PATH WARM? at North Little Rock’s Good Weather, which opened in June.

Visit the Interstate Projects website for details.**

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.
