Governors Island, NY
May 8 – August 1, 2021
Zoe Fisher Projects is thrilled to present a site specific installation of works by Los Angeles-based artist Adam Alessi for the first time in New York at NADA House. In a new suite of oil and flashe paintings paired with never before seen ceramic works and sculptures, Alessi depicts the archetype of the trickster and his various uncanny surrogates. Mischievous masked figures dance across washy dreamlike canvases and ghoulish faces emerge from ceramic pots and doll figures. Suspended in their object or frame, these tricksters taunt us with stories and magic untold, and within the context of the uncanny domestic space of the Governors Island houses, these images just may come alive.
