Athena Latocha @ Galerie Lelong (NY)

Galerie Lelong & Co., New York is pleased to announce (Un)belonging, a group exhibition presenting both historic and new works by Etel Adnan, Ficre Ghebreyesus, Jane Hammond, Alfredo Jaar, Rosemary Laing, Athena LaTocha, Ana Mendieta, Zilia Sánchez, Michelle Stuart, Barthélémy Toguo, and Krzysztof Wodiczko. The works in the exhibition site the establishment of identity through the precarity of place; investigating the politics of belonging to locales both physical and invisible.

(UN)BELONGING will be open from June 22 to  August 4, 2023. 

LaTocha, who incorporates soil and minerals sourced from specific sites into works that recall not only the personal experience of engaging with the land but also the deep history of the geology itself, writes of her practice, “I move through the work as if I am traversing the terrain."
