Anámesa at Black Cat Gallery
Opening Drinks: Wednesday 25 October, 6pm
Exhibition: 25 October – 14 November, 2017
Stacey Korfiatis’ paintings question what happens when the subject is taken outside of the frame. Contrasting the tightly confined figures of her Enclosed series with the liberated subjects of her Threshold series, Korfiatis’ work explores the relationship between the subject and frame, examining the autonomy and (dis)empowerment of her muse.
Greek for in between Anámesa is neither a beginning nor endpoint, but instead a showcase of the fluidity of the space and work that manifested through the development from Korfiatis’ 2014 Enclosed series to her recent work Threshold.
