Walk among large-scale sculptural assemblages that emulate the natural world, often resembling terrariums and vegetation. Latvian artist Daiga Grantina’s labored configurations employ synthetic materials and incorporate conflicting physical qualities: soft and hard, transparent and opaque, mobile and static, strong and weak.

A new suspended site-specific sculptural installation interweaves cast silicone with paint, latex, fabric, and felt, mimicing the growth of lichen. Other forms resemble both rose petals and eyelids.

Closed Mondays.
