  Waiting Room  at This Red Door, curated by Guy Ben-Ari and Leah Wolff   Curated by Guy Ben-Ari and Leah Wolff Presented by This Red Door at Kunsthalle Galapagos  Waiting Room was an evening of cathartic art making at Kunsthalle Galapagos. In the gallery, a worktable with tools and clay was provided and visitors were invited to re-create something that they had lost. Many times the things we lose become obsessions, causing us to compulsively replace them to fill the void of their absence. The viewer recreates the object according to their memory, altering the scale and bringing out certain details. In doing so, they are able to free themselves from the loss by collectively memorializing the object. At the end of the evening, these sculptures became a still life of lost objects. The clay is not air-dry, so its physicality is impermanent - existing only in its documentation.  Waiting Room will also include a collection of works by artists  Arielle Amenoff ,  Tryn Collins ,  Mark Joshua Epstein ,  Jesse Greenberg ,  Kristina Lee ,  Naomi Lev ,  Lauren Luloff ,  Bea Parsons  and  Jessica Segall .
