kaufmann repetto announces Pae White’s fifth solo exhibition at the gallery. Continuing in her exploration of diverse materials, techniques and media, ...and then you know what? presents two site-specific installations along with a large scale sculptural work that reconfigure the gallery's architecture, while playing with themes of tradition and history. For her exhibition ...and then you know what?, the artist presents an installation of four new tapestries that immortalize ephemeral objects in the attempt to render them, "something different from themselves." The tapestries are part of a series originally developed for her 2013 solo exhibition at MAK in Vienna, where the artist responded to the museum's renowned collection of applied arts. The monumental tapestries are woven entirely from metallic threads, which create an almost dematerialized surface. Here, the source image was a photograph of antique Japanese fabric samples that is transformed into a lustrous, mosaic-like weave, with a scale that recalls 16th century models of the genre.
