ON EXHIBITION November 11 – December 13:
Leah Piepgras's Anatomica
Reception Thursday November 14, 6-8:00 PM
Artist talk Saturday November 23, 1-2:30 PM
The Sarah Doyle Gallery is excited to present Leah Piepgras’ first solo exhibition in Rhode Island. Her work engages with a broad range of topics, always returning to the performative quality of everyday rituals: “dishes, laundry, children, marriage, spirituality and sex,” as she puts it.
On display will be objects including her Consumption Plates, dinner plates imprinted with gorgeous blue x-ray imagery of the digestive tract; her Consummation Sheets, bedsheets with ghostly anatomies printed across them in ink and foil; and Longing For You, a fiberglass pillow with similar motifs as the sheets. Together these works suggest both the fragility and sublimity of our daily bodies.
