Sonya Blesofsky: New Work,
Nina Johnson

Sonya Blesofsky deliberately imbues her site-specific architectural installations with construction flaws in order to investigate structural failure and urban renewal. Coming “from a place of great anxiety about things being unstable or falling apart,” she designs her delicate paper, cardboard, wax, and foil structures to remain fragile and serve as the ghosts of architectural detail and design. In her recent body of work, Blesofsky refers to the fragments, traces, and voids left after the renovation of her 26th Street gallery, Mixed Greens. She researched historic photographs and building plans, and produced drawings such as Void: Drawing for 26th Street Doorway (2013) and Memory: Brick Lintel (2013), which reference the former space and its function as a factory.
