Shoshanna Weinberger: Fragments of Perception
Inspired by the Aquatic Garden pool and tropical plants at Wave Hill, Shoshanna Weinberger’s installation Fragments of Perception transforms the Sun Porch into an invisible garden, as well as a space that explores the complexity of her Caribbean-American heritage. A grouping of abstracted anthropomorphic sculptures created using laser-cut, two-sided, acrylic mirrors, resembles various flora.
Shoshanna Weinberger’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. Weinberger has participated in the Jamaica Biennial from 2006 to 2017 in Kingston, Jamaica; and her work was included in the 2013 Martinique Biennale. She has had recent solo exhibitions at Long Gallery, Harlem, New York, NY; Trestle Gallery, Brooklyn, NY; Project for Empty Space, Newark, NJ as well as included in a two-person show at Nomad Gallery, Brussels. Concurrent with her Wave Hill show, Weinberger’s work is included in the group exhibition, Born In Flames, at the Bronx Museum of the Arts. Weinberger received an MFA from the Yale School of Art and a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
