New Project Space Features Ceramics By Rebecca Manson

authorStaff Writer on Jun 22, 2021

Fairfax Dorn, principal of Fairfax Dorn Projects (FDP), is currently presenting “An Impulsive Forage,” an exhibition highlighting new work by artist Rebecca Manson in collaboration with Josh Lilley, London, at The Living Room, a project space in East Hampton. The show runs through July 4. It marks Manson’s first U.S. solo exhibition and features ceramic sculptures made in her studio outside New York City.

As a master of clay, Manson captures the vulnerabilities of nature. The sculptures on view express the relationship between beauty and decay. She is a graduate of the ceramics department of the Rhode Island School of Design and her work is made with both a high-grade technical toolbox and an unfussy disregard for breakable rules. Her subject is nature and its lessons, observed in her gardens and surroundings in the countryside immediately north of New York City.

An extension of FDP’s interior design practice, all exhibitions in the space showcase the relationship between art and furniture. For its summer programming, in addition to Manson, The Living Room will highlight artists Miranda Fengyuan Zhang, Isabelle Rower and Elaine Stocki in partnership with Josh Lilley, London, Mendes Wood DM, and Ballroom Marfa.

The Living Room is located at 70 Park Place in East Hampton. More information can be found at fairfaxdornprojects.com.
