Anat Ebgi is pleased to present new works by native Angeleno Greg Ito and Paraguayan born Faith Wilding for Art Basel Miami Beach. Though generationally distant these two artists are joined by their explorations of rebirth, renewal, and revitalization. The collaborative installation brings together works that examine family histories, the environment, and cultural upbringing through distinct usage of material and symbology.
The installation transforms the booth into an elemental space, rich painted umber walls and carpeting recall fertile soil. Ito's paintings, articulated with his unique graphic vernacular, serve as windows into a future world born of devastation. Wilding's totemic sculptures covered in arcane symbology float on elevated pedestals. Flora and earth as subjects hold significance to both Ito and Wilding.
