We are so excited to announce that our August show at Rare Device will be Sea Salt, a solo exhibit by SF-based artist Aleksandra Zee. Zee creates three-dimensional objects from found and re-purposed materials and situates them in site specific installations. Ranging in scale from small interventions to whole room distortions, she strives to transform the viewer’s perception of the space. Zee is interested in the transcendence of the harsh, broken, or discarded materials into objects of soft whimsy. In much the same way, Zee wants the viewer to pause and lose themselves in the altered environment. Originally from Los Angeles, Zee is constantly inspired by her peers and life in San Francisco.
Her latest show, Sea Salt, is a reaction to her time spent alongside the coast. Says Zee, "I grew up by the ocean. Breathing in the salt air, loving the sea drying on my skin and watching how the ocean, its salt water, calms and restores everything. This show is a reflection of a much needed moment of calmness and still that being in front of the ocean brings upon my spirit."
Rare Device is hosting an opening reception for Sea Salt on Friday August 8 from 6-8pm at our Divisadero location at 600 Divisadero Street. Refreshments will be served and you can have the chance to see these incredible pieces and installations for yourself. Sea Salt will be on display from August 1 until August 31.
