SALA PROJECTS

Inaugural Exhibition

We met in Kaarthijenkia

By Jennifer Macdonald

April 21 - June 4, 2021

New York, NY.


Sala Projects is pleased to present We met in Kaarthijenkia, a group of unique cast bronzes by Jennifer Macdonald, made using the lost-wax method. The prototypes are built from textured wax and wax-coated materials such as card stock, pasta, balsa wood. After casting them into metal, the sculptures are finished with hand-painting and/or chemical patina, sometimes arranged into groups or mixed with found objects or handmade items. In this sense, the forms, surfaces, and inter-relationships are contemporary and changeable. Simultaneously, the bronzes intimate scale and their unexacting roughness are reminiscent of ancient artifacts and armature.


On view, from April 21 through June 4, 2021, We met in Kaarthijenkia will be the first in a series of exhibitions presented by Sala Projects. The exhibition is at 526 West 26th Street, Room 708, New York, NY.

Hours: Open Wednesday through Friday, 12-5 pm or by appointment.
