Ascend in vain in the rain

Amalie Brandt and Hannah Levy

June 19 – July 12, 2015 @ U:L:O:, Interstate projects, New York


Without you I stand.
I am the plan, not the plant.
Your intentions are sweet,
but you fail at my feet.
Constructed before the truth,
I am the shape people see,
I am what they think you should be
...They should all be looking at me.


Weekends is proud to present Ascend in vain in the rain. A floppy and slouching, leaning and crouching duo show, in the courtyard of Interstate. Against a series of trellises, Amalie Brandt and Hannah Levy will present sculptural works of posture. Intended collapses that succeed in their failure to stand erect.
