Sheree Hovsepian 
@ Higher Pictures 
— 

Hovsepian creates 
a supremely tactile, 
haptic experience 
of a medium that 
is paradoxically 
defined, in literal 
terms, as vision, 
disembodied.
’ 

The exhibition

Is Iranian-born,
New York-based
Sheree Hovsepian's 
first solo with 
Higher Pictures 
in New York, for 
which the artist
has developed
a new series
of multimedia 
assemblages –
including elements
of painting, macrame,
lost–wax casting,
and woodworking. 

Works presented:
 
Gelatin silver 
photographs and
photograms taken
from Hovsepian's 
personal archive, 
layered into 
compositions, along
with pieces of sheer 
black or tan fabric
that allude to
women’s hosiery. 

The prints are 
gently curled, 
rolled & draped – 
carefully teased 
into place – and
held gently by
their fabric
enclosures.
