Lauren Fenserstock: Impermanent Conditions

New York

Claire Oliver Gallery

June 12–August 7, 2021

“Lauren Fensterstock: Impermanent Conditions” features seven new wall-mounted mosaic suns inspired by the Buddha’s “Sermon of the Seven Suns”—in which the seventh and final sun precipitates the end of the world—plus a large scrying mirror, titled Obsidian Grotto, made from shells and carved obsidian. This newest body of work builds on the artist’s installation currently on display at the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and continues her investigation of “the storms brewing all around us.”
