The Together but Apart exhibition at Ryan Lee Gallery presents new works by Norwegian artist Anne-Karin Furunes. The exhibition includes a selection of portraits, landscapes, and monumental paintings which Furunes has created with her signature technique: she perforates a painted canvas with thousands of holes.
The exhibition calls attention to the urgent threat of climate change and to the mistreatment of the indigenous inhabitants of Fennoscandia, the Sámi people. The Sámi are facing the threat of climate change after living harmoniously in the Arctic for centuries.
Together but Apart is on view at Ryan Lee Gallery in New York from 19 June to 9 August 2019.
