In the series of new drawings at Fort Gansevoort, Ashoona expresses her personal experience of the sublime. With meticulous detail, her works capture the beauty, terror, and vastness of the landscape she lives in – an immensity only rivaled by her own imagination.
Ashoona’s drawn universe is sometimes harsh and antagonistic, but at other times it becomes a portal through which the mind wanders. In addition to these works, the drawings depict intimate views of Kinngait’s daily life and artistic production in a fantastical manner. With a playful touch, Ashoona explores human psychology through her subjects’ physical interactions and creative labour.
The exhibition will run from the 20th of September until the 4th of November, 2023.
