WESTWOOD GALLERY NYC presents a solo exhibition by New York based installation artist Nobuho Nagasawa. This is her first solo show with the gallery and includes an all-encompassing, site-specific installation entitled Drawn to the Light, which combines the artist’s deep-rooted tradition of multidisciplinary art, fusing technology, light, sound, and healing through community engagement.
The gallery installation turns the space into an ephemeral city to honor the cycle of life through symbolisms from nature. Prior to the exhibition, Nagasawa recorded stories from individuals in three public spaces, Tompkins Square, Washington Square, and Columbus Park. The three parks triangulate an area in which WESTWOOD GALLERY NYC is located, in the center of the Bowery community. Visitors can walk through the gallery as an ethereal experience with white scrim panels hanging from the ceiling and marking off three contextual spaces related to each park. Each of these three areas will have a single light source, to which the symbolic luna moths are drawn to; and the light will emanate the oral stories of loss.
