Tanya Leighton is pleased to present a curated feature of newly finished works by a selection of the gallery’s artists.
These new and recent works, across a variety of medium and scale, would have been the foundation of the gallery’s presentation at Art Basel this June. In light of the event’s cancellation, we are proud to be sharing our artists’ unique perspectives with you in our first online Viewing Room.
We hope that this new platform provides an authentic experience for you to encounter and enjoy the works of many of our artists.
Aleksandra Domanović looks at current scientific research and development, namely bioengineering and the breeding of certain traits. She translates these ideas into sculptures.
Her votives are transformed depictions of the Greek Moschophoros (Calf-Bearer) of the sixth century BC.
The artist fuses the science and culture of different eras, subtly, and poetically questioning norms and beauty outside of norms.
Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam
The play between archaic Greek subject matter and a hyper-contemporary, technologically driven way of sculpting, illustrates Domanović's unique ability to repurpose history to describe our present moment and potential future — a thread that runs throughout her practice.
