plus ultra is completely beside itself to present “tracy and bobby,” the first new york solo exhibition by argentine-born artist analia segal. in her latest site-specific installation, segal continues her exploration of the physical impact we have on the spaces we inhabit and the residual psychological impact of those spaces on us. through subtle, sensuous alterations of the gallery’s walls, she presents the viewer with an experiential paradox of the familiar and the unsettling; the austere and the overt; the shared response to the ubiquitous white walls of exhibition spaces and the self-conscious reaction to unexpected sensual imagery.

segal’s bodily shapes suggest intimate histories, memories, or gestures and open up the imagination to the psychologically charged space beyond the wall. by referencing the potential of the repeated touch to wear away even the most resistant structures, segal’s incisions challenge the grandiose assumptions of architecture, essentially emasculating the authority of the white cube.

“tracy and bobby” is a specific composition of shapes, placed according to how a viewer moves through the gallery, emphasizing the physical traces of the interaction of the human body in an architectural space. segal’s provocative vocabulary echoes this movement, while highlighting architecture’s vulnerability to sensuality. by stimulating our fantasies, segal’s work triggers personal reactions that transcend the boundaries of the spaces we inhabit.
