A New Sculptural Installation and Performance by Liam Sy Paquemar

Following Liam Sy Paquemar’s October 25 performance, the French artist’s sculptural installation will be on view through October 31. Sy Paquemar’s project explores classical heritage and the masculine hold on our aesthetic and psychological perceptions. Eschewing the primacy of style, the artist instead defines a transition from natural to cultural states, rendering a complex history within which viewers may create their own own mythologies.

Sy Paquemar’s work has been shown throughout France at venues including La Nuit Blanche, Paris, and the Abattoirs de Toulouse. He studied at the Beaux-Arts, Paris, as part of the Erasmus + program, and graduated from the Slade School of Fine Art, London.
