 Hashimoto Contemporary is pleased to present GRANNY, a solo exhibition by Philadelphia-based artist Caitlin McCormack. For her inaugural solo exhibition with the gallery, she has created a new body of macabre yet playful osteological specimens and colorful flowers nestled in antique clock cabinets and pinned to lush velvets.  

 

McCormack has created her own taxonomy of creatures, familiar yet peculiar in their composition - delicately rendered skeletal remains laid to rest among cartoonish flora. Utilizing cotton thread to make three dimensional drawings, she observes anatomical specimens and then recreates them from memory. The results are distorted but recognizable figures. 

 

The new work featured in GRANNY explores “the intersection between crochet, gender, and age, viewed through the prism of remembrance.” McCormack contemporizes crochet as a medium while acknowledging, challenging, and incorporating humor within the connotations associated with her process - proclaiming “I am Granny.”    

 

  

Please join us for GRANNY, opening October 5th with an evening reception from 6pm - 9pm. The artist will be in attendance. The exhibition will be on view through October 26th. For more information, additional images, or exclusive content, please email us at sf@hashimotocontemporary.com

Artist ( Description ): 

Caitlin McCormack is a Philadelphia-based textile artist who works primarily with crocheted cotton threads, which are stiffened with glue and positioned to resemble osteological specimens. Her work explores the mercurial nature of human memory as it distorts over time. With the addition of vintage fabrics and found objects, the sculptures build upon a very personal taxonomy of creatures symbolizing Caitlin's memories and experiences. They allow her to explore the intersections of craft and gender, the navigation of trauma, and the relationship between cloth and living, organic forms. Her works have been displayed domestically and internationally, and have been featured in solo and group exhibitions at The Mütter Museum (Philadelphia), The Taubman Museum of Art (Roanoke VA), Mesa Contemporary Art Museum (Mesa AZ), Museum Rijswijk (The Netherlands), Rhodes Contemporary (London), Vanilla Gallery (Tokyo), Jonathan Levine Projects (Jersey City NJ), Feinkunst Krüger (Hamburg), Last Rites Gallery (NYC), Paradigm Gallery + Studio (Philadelphia), Red Truck Gallery (New Orleans), and most recently at Hashimoto Contemporary in San Francisco.
