Document is pleased to present Form Without a Room, a collaborative exhibition of new works by Christalena Hughmanick and Sterling Lawrence.

Christalena Hughmanick and Sterling Lawrence’s collaborative works use rejected Burberry raincoat fabric in the form of moving blankets as a framing device. The photographic images housed within explore abstracts, a fragmented index of information from the beginning of known documented knowledge pertaining to surgical knots. Suspended knot braces become the support for sculptural clay forms, which are reminiscent of the body. Moving blankets deprived of their imagined utility have become the framing units for studies of surgical knots. These knots have three origins of intended use but the focus has been placed on how the knots hold a patient in position.

Christalena Hughmanick currently lives and works in Chicago. Hughmanick’s practice utilizes performance, photographs, textile and sculpture. Her practice continually asks how the value of a thing shifts when it meets a body and attempts to make tangible the space between what is sought after and what is found. Christalena has an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and has exhibited in group shows at the Kinsey Institute SoFA Gallery in Bloomington, IN; A.P.E. Gallery in Northampton, MA, SOIL Gallery in Seattle, WA; Sullivan Galleries in Chicago; and Western Exhibitions in Chicago.

Sterling Lawrence is an artist living and working in Chicago. Lawrence works between image and objects in tied connections through installation. Relations between objects are complicated by their imagined and therefore suggested utility, which is often exaggerated or muted. The temporal nature of of these works are distressed through their relationship within the networks that they produce. Sterling Lawrence has had solo exhibitions with Devening Projects, Chicago; Tony Wight Gallery, Chicago; and has been included in group exhibitions at Scotty Enterprises,Berlin; Soloway, NY; Columbia College, Chicago; Devening Projects, Chicago; and New Capital via Forever and Always, Chicago

Art Omi: The Fields Sculpture Park opens a new exhibition including works by Sara Greenberger Rafferty. The exhibition will be on view from June 14, 2018 until June 1, 2019.

After Harry, 2008, plexiglass, stainless steel, rope, chains, locks, vinyl, found objects. 84 x 36 x 36 inches.

Created for the Public Art Fund in 2008, this work was sited at Metrotech Center in Brooklyn, a public plaza ensconced in the judicial center of Brooklyn. While title After Harry explicitly references Harry Houdini—a figure that figured prominently in Greenberger Rafferty’s practice at that time—this work also alludes to the grave impacts of the judicial system. The courts are a place where justice is handed out, and where there terms of bondage are determined: will the invisible actor in this piece escape or be held in chains?

Sara Greenberger Rafferty has exhibited widely since 2001, including solo exhibitions at The Kitchen, New York; MoMA PS1, New York; Eli Marsh Gallery at Amherst College, Massachusetts; The Suburban, Illinois; and a commissioned sculpture for the Public Art Fund. In 2014, she participated in the Whitney Biennial; the Hammer Biennial; and had solo exhibitions in Portland, Oregon, Riga, Latvia, and New York. In 2015, her work was included in exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego, the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center in Georgia, and Galerie Andreas Huber in Vienna. In 2016, she mounted her 4th solo exhibition at Rachel Uffner Gallery; and had a solo project at Document in Chicago. In 2017, she opened a traveling museum show with accompanying fully illustrated catalogue, published by SUNY Press.
