plus ultra gallery is very pleased to present “wallpaper 01.01.04,” our second solo exhibition by new york artist analia segal. via a large installation of exquisite drawings, segal offers a startling new architectural intervention, an experiential paradox of the familiar and the unsettling. tiled across the gallery, the drawings of “wallpaper 01.01.40” form a grid-rectangular panels joined by delicate corner markings suggesting hair, skin, and orifices.

suggesting the most personal of body parts, segal’s latest installation is impossible to view passively. the viewer is both seduced and confused, as the ambiguously gendered patterns force one to rethink acceptable boundaries, all the while offering the reassuring structures we associate with brickwork and foundations that counter the shock of one’s original associations. creeping out from the crevices, the architectural hair conveys the notion of the uncanny in our habitats, while destabilizing the notion of the constructed space as shelter. once the viewer recovers from an initial unease, however, what remains are works of painstaking precision and beauty. like no two bodies, no two panels are exactly the same. each conveys a quiet, majestic uniqueness and splendor, as does each human body.

plus ultra gallery is also pleased to congratulate analia segal on recent prizes and grants, including a nyfa grant in the category of "architecture and environmental structures, a pollack krasner grant, and first prize in london’s 100% design contest for her tile installation titled “w.c. (water closet – white cube)”.
