Jac Leirner at Yale School of Art

The Yale School of Art presents an exhibition of new work by Brazilian conceptualist and sculptor Jac Leirner, one of the leading figures in the generation of Latin American artists that emerged in the 1990s. Titled Hardware Seda – Hardware Silk, the exhibition comprises an ensemble of hanging, freestanding, and wall-mounted sculptures, as well as a group of polychrome wooden floor-pieces and a series of watercolors related to them. As is the artist’s custom, the sculptures were created out of commonplace objects that she collected. Encompassing turnbuckles, wire, chains, clamps, product labels, spirit levels, and cigarette papers, among other items, these were amassed, and the work created, while Ms. Leirner was in residence this spring at the Yale School of Art.
