STUDIO10
WENDY KLEMPERER
SALVAGE WHAT YOU CAN
Feb 10th – March 5th, 2017
Closing Party: Sunday March 5, 3-6pm

Studio10 is pleased to present Salvage What You Can, Wendy Klemperer’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. Working in the alternating environments of the New England forest and a rough yard in Brooklyn, Klemperer makes sculptures using material collected from scrapyards and construction sites. Networks of steel lines create the forms of animals, and imbed the surrounding physical space. In the dark, under strong light, the sculptures come alive, no longer terrestrial objects, but luminous creatures casting evocatively ambiguous shapes. Working at night led Klemperer to an exploration of shadow and the silhouette, stepping away from the solid and into the liminal.

Here fragile paper, echoing the heavy steel original, hangs and swings unpredictably. Raked with light, the shadows multiply, forms mutate, and narratives continuously unfold in a liminal space. The silhouettes are delicate remnants, but loom large, suggestive of transformation, extinction, and the evolution of new forms.

Wendy Klemperer holds a B.A. in biochemistry from Harvard University and a B.F.A. in sculpture from Pratt Institute. She has exhibited work extensively, including Socrates Sculpture Park, Bridgewater-Lustberg Gallery, DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park, Southern Vermont Arts Center and UNH Museum. Residencies include Skowhegan School, ME, MacDowell Colony, NH, Ucross Foundation, WY, Sculpture Space, NY, IKONS, Newfoundland, Denali National Park, AK, and SIAS University in China. She has many large-scale permanent installations on college campuses across the country. Permanent public installations include Portland International Jetport, ME, Lay Sculpture Park, MO, and Newport News Public Art, VA. Klemperer lives in Brooklyn, NY and Nelson, NH.

STUDIO10 is located at 56 Bogart Street (Morgan Avenue stop on the L train) in Bushwick.
