Klompching Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of recent work, by artist Krista Svalbonas. This will be the artist’s first solo exhibition at the gallery, following announcement of her representation.

As the child of parents who arrived in the United States as refugee, ideas of home and dislocation have always been compelling to Krista Svalbonas. Her work explores this theme, with architectural structure serving as the anchor around which she explores family history and subsequent personal identity in relation of ‘place’. Project titles such as ‘Displacement’, ‘Migrants’, ‘Migrator’, ‘In The Presence of Memory’ are seemingly simple pointers to a subject that is layered and complex. 

The exhibition is a survey of the artist’s recent works-spanning several of these projects-and bringing to the gallery for the first time, artworks that extend beyond photography. The show incorporate mixed media, painting, 3-dimensional sculptural pieces and photographs incorporating laser-cutting. Whatever the media utilized by the artist, the starting point is lens-based, and informed by photography’s monocular vision.

Exhibition Date: September 9, 2020 – February 26, 2021
