Fam. Abstract, Sara Blokland’s first solo exhibition in New York, explores the representation of the concept of family. In individual portraits she shows a family staging themselves. The obscure, almost mysterious nature of the scenes, turn the viewer to a voyeurist, peeking into the “private areas” of this family.
