Mandeville Gallery: Laini Nemett: When We Lived Here

Artist Laini Nemett works with cardboard models, collage, and large-scale oil paintings to create architectural environments that explore the idea of home in the exhibition, When We Lived Here. Nemett describes her work as a response to, “personal histories as recalled by the buildings that house them…I collage and collapse planes to conjure the passing of time and the generations of lives lived between the aging walls.”

In the exhibition, Radical Kingdoms, contemporary works are juxtaposed with early practitioners’ works, such as John James Audubon’s The Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America, and lesser-known artists of the time, such as J. Sowerby, Mary Peart, and Georg Dionysius Ehret, in order to highlight artistic similarities and formal shifts away from traditional modes of presentation.
