Transmutations

On view at Galleri Urbane is “Transmutations,” a highly-anticipated range of sculptural artworks by artist Jessica Drenk.

September 12, 2020 - October 17, 2020

On view at Galleri Urbane is “Transmutations,” a highly-anticipated range of sculptural artworks by artist Jessica Drenk. Known for her compelling transformations that make use of common materials like books, pencils and PVC pipes, Drenk’s newest exhibition continues to push the boundaries of her creative practice. Transmutations presents a number of new methods and material—exhibited for the first time—furthering the artist’s ability to blur the boundary between the man-made and the natural. Drenk’s practice is a dedicated investigation into materials. She employs a process-based approach and seeks to cultivate the hidden potential within many commonplace, often-overlooked objects. 

In the exhibition, viewers will find the largest “Cerebral Mapping: work yet to be displayed at Galleri Urbane: a 11-foot-tall weaving network of wax-covered book spines. “Transmutations” explicitly highlights Drenk’s long-standing use of books as a raw material, revisiting previous series of work and introducing new ones.
