205 Hudson Street is pleased to announce an artist talk by Elizabeth Jaeger as part of MFASO Spring 2017 Lecture Series. Elizabeth Jaeger (b. 1988 lives and works in Brooklyn, NY) has a continued interest in themes surrounding the domestic sphere and alluding to human presence. While erotically charged, Jaeger’s sculptures also tend to function as memento mori. Jaeger's work focuses on figural representations and their complex relationships, ranging from sculptures based on the artist's own body and personal experiences to a series of alert greyhounds. The artist aims to create spaces that exude a sense of unease, where something unidentifiable has gone wrong and an unspecified narrative remains elusive. In Jaeger's newest series of anamorphic vases and welded steel, the artist embraces a new sculptural process that omits explicit figurative elements but works phenomenologically to engage the viewer’s awareness of the physicality of their own body.
