Angela Hennessy: When and where I enter

Southern Exposure

New large-scale sculptural works exploring blackness and the relationship between identity, visibility, and materiality. Hennessy's textile-based practice often addresses cultural narratives of the body and mortality. These newly commissioned installations of woven, crocheted and braided synthetic and human hair boldly reclaim delicate Victorian-era crafts of mourning ritual, layered with signifiers of race, femininity and sensuality.

This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock had to say about Angela Hennessy: When and where I enter :

Bay Area artist Angela Hennessy’s solo exhibition at Southern Exposure features new large-scale sculpture installations that explore blackness in relation to personal identity, social visibility and material form. Her new installations are created from synthetic and human hair implemented as crochet, braids and weavings— commanding space as a political act with delicacy and authority.
