Directions: Cathy de Monchaux

July 14, 2000 – October 26, 2000

Museum: Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden

Location: Level 3

On view are sculptural forms combining brass, puckered suede, chalk, and paper--part seductive, part repellent objects and installations that suggest animal or human anatomy, including a 12-foot wide wall sculpture incorporating two backlit photographs in light boxes on either side of a pinched, puckered, and threaded form--by British artist Cathy de Monchaux (b. 1960).
