Gallery SENSEI is pleased to present MY CANNIBAL, an exhibit of new works by Sarah Anderson

In My Cannibal Sarah Anderson works with images of convergence drawn from film, the internet and her own sculptural practice to describe personal and productive evolution as a kind of cannibalism. These images (of Bergman's double protagonists in Persona, a sci-fi crotch shot and charcoal drawings of the Uffizi wrestlers) are reproduced as enlarged reductive drawings on aluminum sheeting and as soft sculptures. A single-channel video documenting the artist's failed attempt at destroying her own sculpture joins them. The video desultorily sounds a call-and-response interchange drawn from the aggressive, half-mute monologic dialogue in Persona. In the meeting of thighs at the crotch, the impact of wrestling bodies and the merging of individual characters we can see the double as something to be eaten or as something to be demolished

Sarah Anderson holds a BFA in Glass from the Rhode Island School of Design, an MFA from the University of Pennsylvania and attended Skowhegan School for Painting and Sculpture.
