SPILL OVER

Group exhibition Curated by the 2019-2020 University of Delaware Curatorial Fellow, Sam Whalen

March 13 - May 24, 2020 

Opening Reception: Friday, April 3

5 - 9 PM during Art Loop

In a joint venture with the University of Delaware, The Delaware Contemporary is pleased to announce Spill Over, a group exhibition curated by the 2019-2020 University of Delaware Curatorial Fellow, Sam Whalen. In conjunction with The Delaware Contemporary's 2020 major event, Art & Couture: A Contemporary Centennial, this exhibition showcases the work of four female artists: Amy Brener, Loren Erdrich, Kara Mia Fenoglietto, and Rachel Klinghoffer. Spill Over explores the complicated relationships between femininity, adornment, and the physicality of the body. Flooded raw pigments, sculptures dripping with objects both emphasized and obscured, and crushed garments serve as entry points into examining control in relation to the construction of gender identity. 

The works glitter with evidence of the rejection of polished perfection in physical forms while questioning the impact of aging, style obsolescence, and bodily compliance on perceived value. Brener encases disposable grooming items to create an oversized silicone breastplate that becomes a ghostly reminder of the "spill over" from a consumption-obsessed society. Erdrich's manipulation of unfixed, synthetic and organic pigments destabilizes the boundaries between forms on her canvases, sometimes completely dissolved by an overflow of water in the process. Fenoglietto's work explores the self through mixed media materials that are often wearable, as her pieces explore the belief that garments inform our sense of identity and emotions. Klinghoffer utilizes nostalgic items to build up surfaces on sculptures that blur the line between decorated and obliterated. These sculptures investigate her personal connection to femininity, Judaism, romance, and notions of what painting is or isn't.

Spill Over considers the cultural risks and rewards when drawing attention to one's self, as high visibility can and does become dangerous for many femmes. In this alternative embrace of feminine motifs, trying to be seen becomes a powerful act of rebellion, showcasing mastery over one's body and unapologetically embracing vulnerability.

Amy Brener was born in Victoria, BC, Canada and is currently based in Queens, New York.
