Pictures at an Exhibition presents images of one notable show every weekday.
Today’s show: “Andrea Crespo: Joined for Life” is on view at Downs & Ross in New York through Sunday, April 23. The two-venue solo exhibition presents new works by the artist.
Below, an excerpt from the show’s artist statement:
When people ask me if I use “they” pronouns in the neutral or plural sense, I’m left without appropriate words. When they learn about my situation, through my work, they presume it involves a degree of simulation. I allegedly simulate a plural identity, one (or two) that correlates with conjoined twin embodiment. That may be, but “they” also implies a gender-neutral identity. What ties these seemingly competing notions together is liminality—the state or states of being neither and both.
