Samuel Guy | Marissa Graziano: The Little House

September 14 - November 21, 2022

September 14 – November 21, 2022

In their first collaborative exhibition, Marissa Graziano and Samuel Guy re-present the home they shared in Upstate NY from May to September of 2020. Their constructed homestead features Graziano’s staged blocking and Guy’s painted portraits, exploring viewership, memory and the uncanny. Structured as a one-to-one recreation of a cottage bedroom, The Little House presents a space both familiar and distant. Void of furniture and color, this alienated space exists between the family retreat and a white cube gallery. The paintings, all created onsite, operate as portals between real and fabricated bedrooms. The Little House interrogates both spaces; the knowability of them and our passage through them.
