Kai Matsumiya presents the US debut of the Vienna-based artist, Siggi Hofer, in a solo exhibition titled “My Mother Sold Cigarettes in the Mountains”. The title references the show’s thematic spirit, one which presents unending loops, an abundance of the shape/letter/symbol “x”, and text-based paintings in varying configurations throughout the gallery’s space. Signs run across the exhibition where both being and meaning are conveyed simultaneously while remaining incomplete.
WHERE Kai Matsumiya Gallery, 153 1/2 Stanton Street, NYC
WHEN May 21st – June 26th, 2015 – 7-9 p.m.
