ELEVATION by ANNE MOURIER{0}

OCTOBER 7 – NOVEMBER 4 – EXHIBITION – It begins with water, pails of water outlining a path toward the light from the garden windows.  Patiently, through the dark they lead to three massive wooden platforms.  Above them, a figure is visible, fragmented across three floating pieces of silk, ethereal and dissolving in peaceful surrender. She is the feminine.  Her altars are humble structures.  Cleaning tools and sculptural reliquaries that pay homage to cleanliness guide the way to each next step towards her.  Cleaning can purify.  You, me, her and others.  She reemerges a clean spirit, in the light.

Anne Mourier is a French-born, Brooklyn-based artist. She had her first solo show in 2013 at the Glass House @ The Invisible Dog Art Center, which she designed to host her work.  In 2015 she exhibited at the CAOS Gallery in Venice, Italy, during the Biennale, and the following year showed large installations in France, as well as an exhibition at the Musée Yvonne Guegan in Normandy.  This October she is returning to The Invisible Dog with her largest installation yet, Elevation.  Her book Maries, a monograph of her work of the past ten years, its origins, and the process it derived from, which she published in June 2017, will be presented during Elevation this fall.
