Basilica Hudson will present its first one-woman exhibition, an installation of 1,000 sculptures by Laetitia Hussain on Saturday, February 11th. The opening reception will take place from 5-8 pm that night at 110 South Front Street, just south of the Hudson Amtrak station.

Invoking the venue’s industrial heritage of mass production, Hussain has cast the 1,000 sculptures over recent months from HydroCal (a form of plaster) from molds made from an original, 10-sided mahogany prototype. These are numbered and stamped with a special mar before installation on the floor of the Main Hall or suspended on glass and metal from the building’s steel structures.

The installation will also include 10 paintings, light and film projections, and sound by the artist in the 6,000-square-foot, 40’-high Main Hall.
