Bill Lowe Gallery presents Avian, an examination of the primal, resilient and transcendent qualities of the human body, in a one-person exhibition of life-size sculpture by American sculptor Susannah Zucker. The exhibition opens Friday, November 7th, from 6 - 9 PM, at our new Miami Circle location.

The works comprising this show are anatomically driven and involve layering of animalistic, medical and/or fetishistic overtones. The compilation of elements illustrates the human body’s potential to exceed the limitations of conventional physicality.

Susannah Zucker depicts the human body as a vehicle for transformation by combining natural objects that bestow bird-like qualities to them. The wing-like appendages made of bones and antlers offer a testament to the animal aspects of human nature. Zucker explores the instinctual desires and fascinations that often drive us in ways we cannot understand or perceive. A subtle eroticism of feathers and furs is woven into the exhibition's tapestry, filling in the visceral range of the sculptures by making the body a vessel of sensation and pleasure.
