Analia Saban, was born in Buenos Aires and is based in Los Angeles. With her work represented in such significant collections as UCLA’s Hammer Museum, Museum of Contemporary Art, and Los Angeles County Museum of Art in Los Angeles; Centre Pompidou in Paris; and Fundación Proa in Buenos Aires, Saban is recognized for her attention to issues of fragility, balance, technique, and experimentation. Her connection with mundane objects is at the forefront of her investigation of tangible materials and the metaphysical properties of artworks. Throughout the past decade, Saban has developed a dynamic practice that at once explores and subverts the fundamental elements of artmaking, blurring the lines between what constitutes painting, sculpture, and everyday object.
Her work is presented here alongside major new texts on the artist from Johanna Burton and exhibition curator Claudia Schmuckli.
