A SCREAM RUNS THROUGH THE HOUSE
MARCH 21 - MAY 7, 2017
Helena Anrather is delighted to announce the opening of her exhibition space with a presentation of works exploring the souls of household objects. The artists participating in the show are Nanu Al-Hamad, Farah Al Qasimi, Michael Assiff, Dylan Bailey, Dan Herschlein, Akira Ikezoe, Hannah Levy, Michelle Segre, and Kristin Walsh.
A Scream Runs Through the House borrows its title from a book by the critic Arnold Weinstein. The text narrates a vivid dream in which a house full of family members – from ancestors to grandchildren – is awoken by a child’s cry: “one person’s pain becomes another’s, across time and space; there are no borders separating us.” The works in the exhibition bring this dream state into the material world, considering a variety of objects that are fantastically charged and coursing with energy.
