Mar 18 – Apr 29
Zweigstelle Capitain III
Palazzo Degas, Naples
In response to the vast surroundings of Palazzo Degas, JACQUELINE HUMPHRIES has made a suite of seven largescale works that challenge the space’s splendor. Two paintings are hung to cordon off doorways and reroute visitors through the exhibition, blocking the passages used by past residents to direct traffic through a former service corridor. Such architectural interventions have become a mainstay of Humphries’s recent installations, and her current body of work applies long-held formal strategies to a new set of recurring motifs, ranging from schlock horror to contemporary activism, or what the artist calls the "pre-vandalized" image.
