New exhibition by the American artist Kaari Upson on view at Massimo De Carlo

Massimo De Carlo gallery is presenting Hole, a new exhibition by the American artist Kaari Upson. In her practice Upson has investigated and reflected upon the notions of propriety and displacement, voyeurism and exhibitionism. The ground floor of the exhibition is intended as a further exploration of a key topic of Upson’s work: domesticity.

By documenting the metamorphosis of these items from familiar domestic objects to unfamiliar Upson highlights the connection between object-hood and the life story of each of us viewers, as if questioning our journey into decay. Moreover, transformation is key in the new body of work presented by Kaari Upson on the lower ground
