Luhring Augustine is pleased to present new tapestries and works on paper by Christina Forrer, marking her first solo exhibition with the gallery.
Forrer’s turbulent compositions display psychological spaces in which stylized figures clash and embrace, at times simultaneously. Figures are interlocked – now attacking, now attacked.
On the occasion of the exhibition, the gallery will publish an artist’s book by Forrer. Twenty copies of the book will each include a unique drawing by the artist to form a separate limited edition.
Christina Forrer (b. 1978, Zurich) lives and works in Los Angeles.
