Tanya Leighton Gallery in Berlin announced today that it now represents Sam Anderson, a New York–based sculptor whose work could be seen earlier this year at Rowhouse Project in Baltimore.

Anderson has recently become known for her epoxy clay sculptures of improbably thin people, who tend to be contorted in physically impossible positions or altered to appear inhuman. She often shows them alongside lo-fi installations that evoke cast-off debris found in public spaces.

The announcement brings some exciting further news for New Yorkers who might have seen the artist’s work at Canada gallery and Bortolami earlier this year: Anderson will have a SculptureCenter show in 2017. Those in Germany can see her work next year at the Kölnischer Kunstverein in Cologne.
