Heidi Schwegler: My Enemy

Asphodel is pleased to present My Enemy, the first New York solo show of Heidi Schwegler and the gallery’s inaugural exhibition. Schwegler presents a tableau of cast glass replicas of classical Roman portraits and modern garden statuary, cast glass reliefs, orifices, and animals, found objects, and photographs. The artist rides multiple tangents of conceptualism through classical naturalism and back again, Janus-facing both humanism and nihilism. Her works act as a relay between now and then, the unreality of the present and the faulty idealism of the past, what we consider contemporary and the ancient that never was.
