Galleri Urbane welcomes back sculptor and ceramicist Sam Mack for their second solo show with the gallery, buff. This follows their inclusion in the gallery’s 2020 summer collective and their 2019 solo exhibition, Pass.
Traditionally non-functional beyond their original use, the artist grants permanence to familiar vessels such as Big Gulps and coffee cups by making them into stoneware. The sculpted containers are adorned with objects of everyday life, including queer and specifically transgender iconography. While not figurative, nor literally representative of any one individual, these still life objects of transness allow the viewer's body to become the body in relationship to these objects.
