until 19.04. | #2392ARTatBerlin | Peres Projects shows from 15th March 2019 the exhibition Lady Liberty Meets Her Match by the artist Dorothy Iannone.
Peres Projects is pleased to present Lady Liberty Meets Her Match, Dorothy Iannone’s fourth exhibition at Peres Projects. The exhibition is comprised of new works including wall paintings, a sound installation, as well as two new sculptures. The works reference both the figure and text of the Statue of Liberty which Iannone first used in the 1970’s. Ianonne’s work is rooted in ideas of freedom and she has continued to revisit Lady Liberty specifically over the years, most recently in her first public art commission at the High Line in New York City curated by Cecilia Alemani. For this exhibition, Iannone has created Lord Liberty, Lady Liberty’s muse, intertwining our associations of political liberty with Iannone’s deeply personal and autobiographical romantic narratives.
