This solo exhibition of the artist’s recent work that expands Segal’s interrogation of the boundaries between art, design, and architecture, intertwining the conceptual, aesthetic, and functional nature of objects that inhabit our domestic environments.
Contra la pared brings together a selection of Segal’s sculpture, video, furniture, and textile works to create an environment that resonates with both the familiar and the disquieting. The title, which can mean both “against the wall” or “cornered” in Spanish, references allusions in the artist’s work to domestic surfaces, such as wallpaper, as well as the feelings of insecurity and entrapment that interior spaces can provoke. The exhibition will include Inland, an animated video trilogy that juxtaposes the sensual—yet ominous—unfolding of patterned wall surfaces and window-like apertures against a soundtrack of fragmented phrases from language tutorials—in both English and Spanish—and texts from classic fairy tales, such as Little Red Riding Hood and The Three Little Pigs.
