House Becomes You at Gaa Gallery, Wellfleet

DANI LEVENTHAL RESTACK + SHEILAH WILSON RESTACK

HOUSE BECOMES YOU

AUGUST 16 – OCTOBER 6, 2018

Opening Reception Thursday, August 16, 6-8pm

Gaa Gallery Welfleet

 

 

Gaa Gallery Wellfleet is pleased to announce the August 16 opening of House Becomes You, a collaborative exhibition of works by Dani (Leventhal) ReStack and Sheilah (Wilson) ReStack. House Becomes You features sculptural collage and video work that mine the visceral layers of meaning embedded in collective notions of family, domesticity, and physical desire.

 

The works in House Becomes You use video stills that are pulled from A Hand in Two Ways; Fisted (2017). The stills act as a background for material constructions that range from handmade holders for plexiglass to the stitching of colored gels onto the felted image. The works are marked by their conflation of material and content— foam, felt, bags of water, steel and plexiglass, frame the vulnerable physical body that is presented as erotic, sutured, slack and banal. In bringing unlike things together, the exhibition joins the feral with the domestic in a radiant illumination of queer desire, motherhood, and human understanding.
