NURTUREart is delighted to announce Lior Modan’s first solo exhibition in New York: Wringing Lilies from the Pine Nut.


Modan’s eclectic paintings, sculptures and vacuum-casted prints are enigmatic, surprising and oftentimes exquisitely tactile. Using pattern, language and form in glitchy combines, often unified by textural shrouds, Modan’s balancing acts thrive on surface tension, evoking complex, sometimes awkward and/or uncomfortable moods.

Wringing Lilies from the Pine Nut’s exhibition design will take maximum advantage of the natural cavernous look- and-feel of 56 Bogart’s basement, using the lack of natural ventilation, warm spotlights, dusty floor and shadows to intimately connect the viewer with each work. Each intrinsic feeling / meaning / evocation working towards unifying narratives and sub plots.

A seasoned pot meets its double and claims it as its very own. Calm waters descend upon imaginary sandy feet, to wash and cool them down. The dark skin of a wrecked umbrella conceals and reveals at once. Banana peels take flight: a stormy cloud. A jester lurks behind a tightly stretched canvas, swarmed in butterflies. (…And more.)

Wringing Lilies from the Pine Nut is a selection from our 2014-15 open calls. This exhibition is curated by Marco Antonini.
