Salon: Silvia Giambrone and Anjana Kothamachu  | Events Calendar


Williamsburg

International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) | 1040 Metropolitan Avenue

Silvia Giambrone will present previous performances and installations that link beauty and violence as well as new works she has produced during her residency at ISCP. The common thread connecting all her works is the idea of domestic violence, not as something happening at home but as something that already belongs to culture. Visitors will be invited to Giambrone’s studio.

The primary motivation for Anjana Kothamachu’s work is to reify the emotional, mental and physical state of desire. This is realized through drawing, object-making, moving images and spoken-word narratives. She will present some of her previous work and introduce the project that she has worked on during her residency. Her stories are staged in fabricated worlds extracted from the everyday, venturing beyond veneers of reality and consciousness into the subconscious to access the unspeakable in human experience.
