SPECIAL EXHIBITION: Dot Vile


  • SAVERY Gallery 319 North 11th Street Philadelphia, PA, 19107 United States

SAVERY Gallery is pleased to present a special exhibition of sculpture by Philadelphia artist Dot Vile

"I directly compare cloth with femininity. Structurally, both hold traits of deep-seated fragility. Single threads, repetitively built up, construct cloth. Our body repeats a single cycle, preparing itself to bear. A womb and a blanket act nest-like while adapting to what they hold. Similarly, bricks and cement become a shell of a building, seemingly strong, on par with man. I exploit such materials to expose a strength, weakness and resilience in each. I make this way to find and question the homelike qualities in masculine and feminine balance."
