June Crespo

their weft, the grass

June Crespo is a sculptor with a strong connection to everyday objects, the physical body and the spaces we inhabit. For her, these all become materials to work with, to think from.

In an intuitive way she explores these materials’ physical qualities, what is visible as well as what we can’t see. The way they relate to each other and how they can be transformed into something else. Also their psychological qualities and what these new material arrangements evoke in us when we observe them.

A sense of transformation is an important aspect of the work. Changes in scale, materials, the perspective from which we look at something, as well as the act of connecting, become tools for changing the identity and our reading of things.

For the exhibition their weft, the grass, the artist poetically explores the connection between our bodies and architecture, between ouar insides and the place we find ourselves in.

With this focus, the large interventions and sculptures in the exhibition could be seen as abstract architectural organs. Organs that push and pierce the walls used as limits between what is inside and outside of them.

At the same time, by playing with contrasting sculptural qualities, such as weight and suspension, tension and release, the works embrace an experience of contradiction.

The new works presented at 1646 are part of our long term collaboration with CA2M in Madrid and a continuation of the work shown at the exhibition They saw their house turning into fields in 2023.
