A group exhibition featuring the Winter 2018 Residency artists


Featuring: Lauren Bakst (USA), Isak Berbic (USA), Jose Castrellon (Panama),  Jesse Chun (USA), Ryotaro Fuyuki (Japan), Maya Jeffereis (USA), Sukjoon Lee (Korea), Wonwoo Lee (Korea), Umber Majeed (USA), Annesofie Sandal (Denmark), Freya Powell (USA), Merel Visse (Netherlands), Lu Zhang (China).

NARS Foundation is pleased to present Of Tongues and Hands, a group exhibition featuring the work of current artists-in-residence. During their 3 or 6 month residency, this group of thirteen international artists have focused on developing their individual practices and research projects that range from engaging with collective and personal histories, memories, and languages to exploring intimate relationships, the body, and materiality. In the process of working alongside each other affinities, collaborations, and exchanges have emerged that will continue to be explored as the gallery, in addition to the artists’ studio, becomes a space for making, sharing, and showing work during their last month in the residency. 

Opening night performances by:
Lauren Bakst, joined by collaborator and performer effie bowen, will offer a series of performances for one audience member at a time in her studio. These performances-for-one pull from Private Collection, a body-based, open-source archive that indexes psychic and somatic architectures of intimate relationships.
Lu Zhang’s project It Takes Ten Years Practice to be on the Same Boat is a dating experience inside a Chinese river boat, made of ceramic, reed, steel and wood, in the artist's studio. Drinks and snacks will be offered on a ceramic Chinese checkers and tea table. This project is ongoing, with new dates coming in March. Sign up on the project’s website.
