Jamie Isenstein, Body of Mirrors (four hands, two arms), 2017, c-print. Courtesy of the Artist and Andrew Kreps Gallery, New York.
Jamie Isenstein’s abiding interest in dualities of truth and illusion, high and low culture, and life and death, along with her embrace of vaudeville, slapstick and “artful deception,” has resulted in a playful body of work that spans photography, sculpture, video, and performance. Although Isenstein has often used herself as a prop within her sculptures, Head Space marks a departure for the artist. In this exhibition her body is conspicuously absent and is instead replaced by disguises, automatons and the viewers themselves.
