A Solo Exhibition by Alyssa Lempesis

15 August - 20 September 2014

Alyssa Lempesis creates work inspired by the qualities of mysterious organisms and imagined insides. Tugging at the grotesque, these lumpy, foamy hunks and fragments unfold into a fantastic place, somewhere between unknown and familiar.

Aggregate Space Gallery is pleased to present these animations and sculptural works that embody anxiety and desires, hypnotically pulling us into an uncanny space that simultaneously evokes biological fact and the absurd spectacle of the physical.
