Five Untitled Drawings

The interplay of emotion and drama is manifest in Piene’s drawings. The series that accompanies her video installation for the International 2002 consists of four humanoid figures and a goat. These animal and human forms present a kind of hideous grace – both seductive and horrifying, fragile and hostile, ethereal and bold. Piene’s graceful handling of abject strength, so punctuated by the unlikely beauty of the testosterone-fuelled teens in the video The Woods, is condensed in these solitary figures on paper. Eddie Berg and Jo McConigal
