2017 Exhibitions

RANNVA KUNOY

October 25 - December 3, 2017


Nathalie Karg Gallery is pleased to present Rannva Kunoy’s first solo exhibition in New York. Kunoy’s new works deliberately hijack our expectations for the process of looking.

A surface that appears to be a saturated purple shifts to an iridescent green. A…

The column is nearly horizontal, looking less like the modernist totem it became and more like what it was:…
