Four Projects: Doug Argue, Bill Fontana, Alexandra Grant, and Les Rogers
at Haunch of Venison
, New York
July 7 - August 28, 2010

Invited to exhibit at Haunch of Venison, L.A. based Alexandra Grant will be exhibiting a series titled Yo Soy Lo Que Veo, from her project Bodies, based on the book by Jorge Volpi, Mexican novelist. Using text and collaborating with poet Michael Joyce, Grant confronts symbolic and formal uses of text to construct her installations, where as she states "Arches become legs, slivers of moons, rainbows that support the words - which laid out symmetrically resemble organs or eyes." By densely layering shapes and letters, Grant questions the awareness of language as a construct toward meaning, often playing with logic to confuse phrases and the resulting associations.
