Georgia Scherman Projects presents Like a Statue, a group exhibition accompanied by a special performance by Andrea Maack.
A group exhibition curated by Stefan Hancherow and Jennifer Simaitis, featuring works by Andrea Maack (Reykjavik/Milan), Aaron Weldon (Halifax/Berlin), and David Poolman (Toronto) utilizes an olfactory installation, painting and sculpture as a means to reveal the dissipation of memories and a desire to solidify them.
Maack’s work stems from multi-sensory experiences where abstract images are the basis for her eponymous fragrance brand. Her installations are presented as high-end perfume shops, or fashion runways with minimal furnishings and calculated branding. Maack sustains the semblance of a commercial operation as a means to extend her conceptual art practice. In this exhibition, sound, video, scent and performance document her recent voyage to an 8,000-year-old cave in Snæfellsnes, West Iceland. This installation illuminates her upcoming fragrance, Dual (2015), which embodies the stark contrast and seductive mystery of the cave.
