Salon: Ling-lin Ku and Maria Zervos
Ling-lin Ku’s recent sculptures call on commercial window displays and retail shelf architecture as spaces for self-projection, desire, collage and humor. Finding inspiration in food, language puns, free association, day dreaming, and material alchemy, Ku will discuss how these influences hybridize in her object making.
Maria Zervos will speak about her interests in peripatetics, home and exile, topos and utopia. She will present her recent project entitled Peripatetics (Athens) together with a book that includes poems and texts by the artist and others, which explore the current state of migration in relation to politics.
