Surabhi Saraf

Still from ‘Tablets’, 2014

The exhibition features new work created by the 2016 A+P+I resident artists Carrie Hott, K.R.M. Mooney, and Surabhi Saraf.

Working with video, installation, and sculpture, these artists explore questions around site and materiality through diverse artistic approaches. Using lace from MCAM’s collection, Carrie Hott explores the idea of creating structure to support fugitive objects. K.r.m. Mooney’s subtle interventions into the museum’s architecture explore the intersection of objects, bodies, and space. Surabhi Saraf’s video engages the idea of immobile intensities through slow movement of the human body.
