Simone Leigh’s new ceramic sculptures are stunning. Largely shedding the heavy ornamentation of her earlier ceramic busts, the pared down simplicity of Leigh’s new architectural bodies augment the majestic dignity of her subjects. Leigh’s preoccupation with female African-American identity, architecture and ethnography point towards the matriarchal body centric and to a magnanimous domesticity that morphs women’s heads into vases and bodies into homes. Solid, sincere and rich they exude a quiet tenacity that proclaims: I am here; in my unique and rightful place. At Luhring Augustine through October 20.
