L’INCONNUE Gallery is pleased to open its new permanent location with an inaugural exhibition showing new and existing works by Emily Ludwig Shaffer (b.1988) and Françoise Grossen (b.1943). In dialogue across differing mediums, the artists share an interest and background in architecture, an abstracted relationship to the body, the representation of craft, and a tangential relationship to science fiction. Emily Ludwig Shaffer and Françoise Grossen marks the first exhibition following the gallery’s relocation from Montreal.
