<![CDATA[Visual artist Ester Partegàs exhibits in New York]]>Arts. New York, 16/09/2021
Essex Flowers is pleased to present Guardian, a two-person exhibition featuring Ester Partegàs and Claire Watson. Both artists create composite structures, joining and mending fragmentary materials to twist and refresh our perceptions of familiar objects. There is an aspect of care or maintenance; the artists pull apart seams, suturing and reconstituting these elements to form uncanny embodied wall works and sculptures imbued with presence. Their work brings into question the life of the commodified object and the labor associated with it, whether it is a laundry basket or the sewn garment. What has traditionally been known as “womxn’s work” is receiving a new life and meaning here, resisting the innate gendered associations.

Organized by Tamar Ettun & Antonia Kuo
