New works by Danica Radoshevich

Opening Reception: February 3rd, 2018 // 7pm - 9pm
Gallery Hours: Sundays 12 - 4pm + By Appointment


Little Berlin is pleased to present two new shows; Absurd! a group exhibition of artists working in traditional craft
vernaculars to create absurdist objects and push against the historical presumptions of functionality, and
Recommendation for a Monument, a section of new works by Danica Radoshevich.. There will be an opening
reception for both shows on Saturday, October 7th from 7pm - 9pm.
Absurd! is a collection of multimedia works from artists working with traditional craft methodologies. Whether
focusing on ceramics, woodworking, sewing, metal smithing, and tromp l’oeil painting, the each artist’s practice
moves beyond the functional and the domestic tropes of craft. Whether the uneasy examination of domestic
space seen in Paul Rouphail’s obsessively precise illusionist paintings or the ludicrous eroticism of Emily Culver’s
mixed media sculptures, all of the work in consciously pushes back against the self-seriousness of
contemporary craft while maintaining a dedication to precision and care.
Featured Artists:
Sutton Demlong, Baltimore, MD
Emily Culver, Gatlinburg, Tennessee
Danielle O’Brien, Washington, D.C.
Robert Aiosa, Tampa, Florida
Paul Rouphail, Philadelphia, PA
In Recommendation for a Landmark, Danica Radoshevich has created a body of work exploring the
dissociative space of American motorways. Mining the forms of strip malls, roadways and construction signage,
Radoshevich’s new pieces reflect on the structures made invisible through constant overexposure in daily urban
life. Sitting in between painting, sculpture and installation, these artworks ask the audience to reconsider the
mental geographies of banal lived experience, embracing a new context for the unassuming.
