55 Walker (Bortolami, kaufmann repetto, and Andrew Kreps Gallery), is pleased to announce an exhibition of works by Carla Accardi and Elisa Sighicelli.
At the centre of the exhibition is Carla Accardi's groundbreaking series of paintings on Sicofoil, a commercial plastic, which she first incorporated in her practice during the 1960s. Disrupting the traditional relationship between painting and its environment, the works investigate the interplay of multiple spatial planes within an artwork. This is the central interest of Elisa Sighicelli's new photographs on satin, which form both a material and conceptual response to Accardi's series of paintings on Sicofoil.
