Hanna Liden "No Weather Data Available" @ 56 Henry Gallery In New York

In the main gallery Liden presents three cast-concrete sculptures, all molded from crook-handle umbrellas. Rendered in battleship grey, deep charcoal, and cautionary orange, the umbrella sculptures are suspended at inconsistent heights from the gallery ceiling. Two umbrellas dangle from welded industrial chain, and a third hangs from a noose looped around its handle. Strung up by their necks, the casts begin to resemble bodies hanged from an executioner’s scaffold. Hanna Liden "No Weather Data Available" will be on view until May 1, 2016 at 56 Henry Gallery in New York. photographs by Adam Lehrer
