Julia Phillips: Failure Detection - Ongoing until September 3 - MoMA PS1 presents the first solo museum exhibition of New York-based artist Julia Phillips (German and American, b. 1985), featuring six newly commissioned major works alongside existing sculptures. Primarily working with ceramics, New York-based Phillips creates objects and scenes that are intimately connected to the body. Her sculptures often propose various support structures for the human form, while emphasizing its absence. Impressions of the body are visible through casts of limbs, orifices, handprints, and other corporeal traces. Though evocative of physical functions, these works also produce social and psychological resonances. For Phillips, the body is materially, linguistically, and metaphorically entangled in politics, as suggested by terms such as “manipulator,” “protector,” and “extruder” that appear in the titles of her works. | MoMa PS1, 22-25 Jackson Ave, Long Island City
