Opening reception: Traces of the Material World: Jessica Backhaus, Capucine Bourcart, and Paola Ferrario

On view: September 8 - October 8, 2017 

happylucky no.1 is pleased to announce Traces of the Material World featuring artists Paola Ferrario, Capucine Bourcart, and Jessica Backhaus, each in her own way, focuses on vernacular imagery – snippets of graffiti, the patched-up hood of a car, a length of string twisted in the sun – transforming the most pedestrian of things into compact visual poems. Their observational images reframe and recontextualize small, ordinary scenes, drawing our attention to the material world.
