Daiga Grantina at New Museum

The New Museum, like many of its New York counterparts, reopened this week. This is an opportunity to discover again the exhibition of Daiga Gratina at the New Museum. The French based artist Daiga Grantina, who represented Latvia during the Venice Biennale in 2019, presented a new solo show entitled "What Eats Around Itself." The exhibition will be reopen to the public  at the New Museum until January 3, 2021.

In "What Eats Around Itself," the former graduate of the Hamburg Academy of Fine Arts presents the properties of lichen, a composite organism resulting from the symbiosis of fungi and algae, in a large-scale sculptural assemblage imitating the natural world. For her exhibition at the New Museum, the artist presents a new site-specific sculptural installation that intertwines molded silicone with paint, latex, fabric, and felt. The work mimics the growth of lichen, which typically develops into a crusty, leaf-shaped, or branching formation.
