Altman Siegel is pleased to announce It‘s not what it looks like, a solo exhibition by UK-based artist Emily Wardill. For her third solo show at the gallery, Wardill will transform the space into an immersive experience addressing the artist’s interest in the complex and transient relationships between images, objects and ideas. The exhibition features the U.S. premiere of the artist’s film I Gave My Love a Cherry That Had no Stone (2016), as well as interrelated relief sculptures and text-based rayograms. Wardill’s multilayered exhibition accentuates states of transition, both within the artworks themselves as well as their relationship to one another. Reconsidering the architecture of the gallery, Wardill heightens the fluid nature of the space, transmuting language into material, films into paintings and sculptures into flat walls.
