Leonor Antunes exhibits at San Francisco Museum of Modern Art
Luisa Strina Gallery present the exhibition A spiral staircase leads down to the garden by Leonor Antunes at SFMOMA
Leonor Antunes (Portuguese, born 1972) present A spiral staircase leads down to the garden, her new exhibition at San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. The artist creates sculptures that conflate physical, measurable experience with the effects of memory and time. Layered with historical and material references, her installations extract details and components from work by artists, architects, and designers associated with modernism.
For this exhibition, Antunes intertwines research into an unrealized residential commission in San Francisco by architect and designer Greta Magnusson Grossman, measurements from existing Grossman homes in Los Angeles and Sweden, and the woven work of Anni Albers, Ruth Asawa, and Kay Sekimachi. Antunes’s site-specific installation inaugurates a new gallery dedicated to SFMOMA’s New Work series.
