My very old and dear friend Kate Levant, whose work has been featured in New York Magazine and T: The New York Times Style Magazine, has an opening April 1 at the Zach Feuer Gallery in Gallery 2. In addition to being one of my oldest friends, she is an amazing talent with a deep and pensive soul, truly:
Kate Levant This is Laced
In Gallery 2, Zach Feuer will present This is Laced by Kate Levant. The installation consists of collages made from cut up drawings, photographs and plastic that are cross-stitched into construction paper and fabric to create a ricocheting network of aspects that reflect off and weave into other aspects. The images and information in each collage are coded or camouflaged due to the patterns and weaves. In some works, plastic shields portions of the collages and in others, parts are stitched inside brown paper bags completely hidden from view. In many, Levant is “dissecting photographs of old sculptures I’ve made and reconfiguring them with the camouflage, like they’re diagrams of weird sci-fi devices that actually work…or will work…to cross over some event-horizon.” Kate Levant was born in 1983 in Chicago, IL and received a MFA from Yale University in 2010. In 2009, Levant organized/compromised BLOOD DRIVE at Zach Feuer Gallery and her work was recently included in The Island, organized by LAND and OHWOW on Flagler Memorial Island (Miami Beach, FL). Levant lives and works in Detroit, MI.
