Of Flesh and Air

Gregory Amenoff, Clare Grill, Heather Guertin, Victoria Roth, Gedi Sibony, Patricia Treib

Galería Marta Cervera is honoured to present Of Flesh and Air, a collaborative show by six New York-based artists which will be on exhibit from 03 February 2024 until 30 March 2024. This exhibition arose from an idea by Patricia Treib and a circle of friends: Gregory Amenoff, Clare Grill, Heather Guertin, Victoria Roth, and Gedi Sibony.

Of Flesh and Air

Life is Motion

Sometimes too fast

Like sound hitting air

As an event

As a throatful

Of unframed flesh and atoms


Life is Motion

Pulled-apart existence

Of bread of families of flowers

Of time and space

In Spain

Gregory and Clare and Heather and Victoria and Gedi and Patricia

Oil on canvas

Aluminum and wood

Ceremonial evolutions

Always never arriving

“Until I catch them breathing”


Life is Motion

In the Hic et Nunc

Around a stump

Around a long ago

Around a future

And toward a somewhere else

Of lighted points

Of present configurations


Life is Motion!

Heraclitus cried

All entities move

And nothing remains still

Our reflections

And dilations of time’s society

And purpose


Life is Motion

Present portals

Of futures hitched

Inside them

To a union

Of mystery

To a world

That lacks

A grounding effect


--Kim Rosenfield, NYC 2024
