"TIGHT CONNECTIONS" - 522 West 19th Street, New York

January 27, 2022 to March 05, 2022
Slag Gallery is pleased to present Tight Connections, a solo presentation of recent works by Naomi Safran-Hon.  This will be the artist's fifth solo exhibition at the gallery. In this new body of work, the Tight Connections may not be obvious. The artist embeds photographs into paintings with cement, fabric, lace, and acrylic. The oeuvre explores the space between photography and painting. The invisible seam lines between the works' disparate materials bring into focus how easy it is to overlook how we are all connected. An aspect, the artist suggests, which the COVID-19 pandemic has brought to light.

With Passion

June 03, 2016 to July 17, 2016
Defined as “sympathetic consciousness of others’ distress together with a desire to alleviate it,” compassion is a complex and dynamic term that incorporates many other notions and circumstances within it; passion for example, is a criteria for compassion. In Western philosophy as well as in religions, passion is considered a primitive and an instinctive state of being that is the basis for deadly sins. Contemporary philosopher Roberto Mangabeira Unger, however, rejects the idea that the passions must be tamed in order to be productive, and suggests that passions are raw responses that can also act in the service of reason.

Hard Times: Paintings

September 05, 2014 to October 05, 2014
This new body of work reveals the fragility of human experience and the complicated nature of one’s home. Destruction—both intentional, at the hands of the artist, and incidental, as the result of time and desertion—recasts the viewer’s notion of the show’s titular subject, “hard times,” in terms of geopolitical conflict, irresolvable nostalgia, and the personal struggle to find one’s place in the world, both physical and psychological.

Absent Present

February 24, 2011 to April 09, 2011
Safran-Hon’s work is anchored in an undeniable reality, yet, by extracting the essence from the soul of the materials she uses, she unceasingly builds, thus transforms preexisting contexts. The spirit is inherent in Safran-Hon’s intellectual construction and, as the journey described in sefer hechaloth, the inner odyssey within oneself (Anselm Kiefer) permeates her entire body of work.
