David Kordansky Gallery will present a solo presentation by Jennifer Guidi, titled 11:11, at FIAC 2019 (Booth C15), Grand Palais, Paris, October 17 - 20, 2019. The presentation will feature a new series of works on paper installed within a specially designed architectural structure, the presentation will provide an immersive experience of focused viewing within the open, vaulted spaces of the Grand Palais in Paris. Guidi’s longstanding connection to the landscape, as well as her affinities for visionary and occult art historical traditions––from the iconography of ancient Egypt to the transcendent vistas of Agnes Pelton––are on full display in these intimate drawings. Each one is a universe of symbols, mark-making patterns, and color combinations unto itself. The structure in which the works will be housed is a circular, twenty-two-sided room whose walls are covered with black sand, establishing one of several connections between this project and the artist’s mandala paintings.
