Ana Genovés Opening

About

In the West, we see dying as a cliff-edge, a sudden and irrefutable biological event; here one moment, gone the next. Ana Genovés wants to talk about death differently - about binary opposition versus ineluctable processes, and the cognitive dissonance humanity clings to in order to sleep well - through sculpture that operates between the boundaries of making, faking and destruction. In her new sculptures for Standpoint Genovés also comments on the adaptive failures of the architecture that are inherent in any minimally-funded, artist-run space: the untidy gaps above false walls that reveal the building's original cornice work, the abandoned attempts to achieve a right angle at a wall edge, the lumpy RSJ's which divide up the ceiling space. And their subtly emotive surfaces that implausibly feel clothed or naked, the viewer is reminded that despite our self-elevated status as 'subjects' in this world we are subject to all the same material entropy as every other object.
