A collection of Lee Lozano's drawings from the years 1963-1964. In these early works, Lozano subjects tools screwdrivers and bolts, staple guns and hammers to violent aesthetic scrutiny, fleshing out these objects' manifest chauvinist sexuality into a wildly disinhibited reinterpretation. In Lozano's hands, screws are no longer a neutral means to hang a painting or set a bookshelf but rather explicit euphemisms of sexist logic: anthropomorphized machines aggressively screwing in and out of each other in acts of overdetermined functionality, regardless of pain or pleasure. Includes a text by Sabine Folie.

New York, NY... Lee Lozano (1930 1999) has been described as one of the least known great artists of the New York scene of the 1960s and early 1970s. Navigating the transition from Abstract Expressionism to Pop Art, from Minimalism to Conceptual Art, she created a radical, overtly sexual, and aesthetically provocative body of work in a male-dominated art world. She rifled through styles at breakneck speed, from surreal representational drawing and painting, toward abstraction and, ultimately, word pieces and action-dominated art. As vivid and furious as the social and political changes taking place in America at that time, Lozano s multi-faceted oeuvre, produced over the course of a single decade, traces a ceaseless investigation into the body and issues of gender, and a journey toward authentic and complete individuality in a world bent on creating consensus.
