Lynda Benghis @ Thomas Dane Gallery

8 May 2024 - 27 July 2024

In Knots and Videotapes, two seminal groups of works by Lynda Benglis are exhibited together here, decades after they were first seen in the U.S. Benglis’s knotted sculptures and videos from 1972 to 1976 show more unaltered exuberance and enduring adventure than ever.

The first half of the seventies saw Benglis wrestle with the hard-edge aesthetics of the sixties, distorting its orthodox forms and ideologies—scrunching, twisting and knotting them up. Freezing these tussles in time, Benglis embellishes each of her “knots” with sparkles, plaster and paint, or even sprays them with metallic coatings.
