Hahn & Hertz
new work from Heidi Hahn and Dmitri Hertz

Opening Reception

the Annex

On View: May 28 – July 1, 2017

Gallery Hours:
W-F: 10-12:30 and 3-4:30
Sa: 10-12:30 and anytime by appointment

Lighthouse Works is thrilled to present Hahn & Hertz, the Annex Gallery’s first alumni show featuring new works by painter Heidi Hahn, a Spring 2015 alumnus, and sculptor Dmitri Hertz, a Fall 2014 alumnus. Hahn’s figurative and playful paintings script out a strange endless narrative alongside Hertz’s absurd and seductive sculptures. Both artists create and explore their own self-built worlds in which they freely play and tinker.

Hahn’s character’s reflect and walk through her compositions creating a palpable solitude and imbuing the work with a psychological charge. Through her use of the decorative and this lone female character, Hahn is challenging the history of painting and the depiction of the female body.

Hertz’s Pollen Series is perched throughout the gallery making the seemingly mundane and hidden forms of pollen irresistible and tangible. These ungainly sculptures probe the organic for answers to questions of form and materiality.

Hahn & Hertz is the first of three alumni shows slated for 2017. These shows are part of our Legacy Program, an opportunity for our community to reconnect with our past fellows and their work.

Lea Cetera
Chair Totem Pole, 2017
painted steel and hardware

Chair Totem Pole is an homage to common everyday chairs. It is at once a gateway, a totem pole and a balancing act of three common chairs; a Shaker chair, a folding chair, and a stool.  All rendered at double scale, stacked on top of one another and share a central axis; their legs.

In contrast to a series that Cetera made of painted steel copies of high design chairs such as the Wassily Chair by Marcel Breuer, the Barcelona Chair by Mies Van der Rohe and the LC2 Petit Modele Armchair by Le Corbusier that commented on the accessibility of high design, these double-scale quotidian chairs are a monument to everyday life.

With a background in theater and performance, Cetera was inspired in part by Augusto Boal’s acting exercise “The Chair of Power,” which addresses the invention and reconfiguration of space and the spatial structures of power. Cetera is interested in what becomes sacred in the canon of design versus what is allowed to be reproduced, it’s accessibility, and who makes those decisions.

Lea Cetera works in video, sculpture and performance to produce temporal installations that examine the space between object and body, public and private, the virtual and real. Utilizing techniques culled from film and theater, her work addresses constructed identities, the mediation of technology, the alienation of the human body, and the aura of the object/fetish. Emerging from a collaborative background in theater and filmmaking, Cetera has performed and shown work in the US and internationally at venues such as Art in General, Sculpture Center, The Jewish Museum, Disjecta Contemporary Art Center, Southard Reid, Pilar Corrias, Simone Subal, High Desert Test Sites, Poetry Project at St. Marks Church on the Bowery, Anthology Film Archives and was awarded an emerging artist fellowship with Socrates Sculpture Park in 2016. She holds an MFA from Columbia University, 2012 and a BFA from the Cooper Union School of Art, 2005. She lives and works in New York City.
