Kennedy Yanko: Editors’ Picks | Stockholm Art Week

Cultbytes, April 27, 2022

 

 

Moving Weight at CFHILL.
The exhibition is open from April 29 – May 22, 2022.
Västra Trädgårdsgatan 9, 111 53 Stockholm, Sweden.

 

Moving Weight will be Brooklyn-based artist Kennedy Yanko’s first solo exhibition in Scandinavia. A sculptor and installation artist, Yanko is known for her work with metal and what she describes as “paint skins”— or dried latex paint that retains malleability. Yanko describes her process: “I make a couple of different kinds of paint skins, a soft skin, which is paint by itself, has a porous, visceral quality to it. It has an acrylic base, so over time all the air comes out of it, it slumps, and adheres to the metal, making this beautiful lock and moment, emulating harmony, and inception.”
