Join us for the opening of 2019 ICP-Bard MFA candidate Andrea Martucci’s solo exhibition, Of This Being, at the ICP-Bard MFA Studios in Long Island City.
This is the artist’s first solo exhibition in New York City. Martucci works with varied materials and processes as a way to narrate personal experience. She considers her work an extension of the self, a tactile expression of growth and what is discarded in the process.
In Of This Being, Martucci employs multiple methods of photographic imagemaking, along with video and sculptural explorations. This exhibition developed out of the artist’s drive to solidify a distorted identity, a result of coming of age while experiencing gender-based violence. Drawing from memory, Martucci renders imagery of bodily trauma in suspension and as sites of potential reaction. This work operates as a space of reflection, processing, and ultimately progression.
Andrea Martucci (Detroit, MI) earned her BFA from the College for Creative Studies in photography with a minor in fine art and a focus in sculpture. Martucci has worked within art education institutions such as the Detroit Public School System and Oakland University, as well as with art spaces such as the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, and the Detroit Center for Contemporary Photography. She has also worked with New York–based institutions such as AIR Gallery, and as a fabrication assistant at Matthew Barney studio. Her work consists of material explorations with conceptual overlay. She mainly works with photography, sculpture, video and text. Her work revolves around the redefinition of selfhood in the wake of trauma, frequently addressing themes of gender based inequality and violence. Martucci lives and works in Brooklyn.
