Paweł Althamer’s Venetians


This haunting series by contemporary Polish artist, Paweł Althamer, features dozens of cast faces and sculpted human forms dispersed throughout the room, making full use of the gallery floor. The pieces are structural – at times, you can see spines, foundations, framework – yet they have an incredibly gestural quality that gives them an unusual lightness. The Venetians is one of several collections of Althamer’s work on view through April 13th, 2014 at the New Museum.
