Exhibition view: installation of rolled out metal plates hanging from the ceiling

Ceiling Analysis is Patricia L. Boyd’s first institutional solo exhibition in Austria, consisting of newly commissioned work. The central piece is a large sculpture suspended from the ceiling of the Grafisches Kabinett, further lowering the already low ceiling of the gallery. The sculpture is the same length and width as the ceiling in Boyd’s psychoanalyst’s office in New York.

Ceiling Analysis II is borne of an inquiry into the interdependency between what we refer to as “external” and “internal” (including all the various permutations of what those words can mean). It addresses the architecture of the gallery it hangs in, while also operating as a metaphor for the constitution of an interior mental space. Boyd’s exhibition is grounded in her experiences of the inclined, horizontal posture she assumes as an analysand hour upon hour, week upon week. What happens when we give up our upright, standing position, tied to a hierarchical thinking structure?

Boyd’s practice encompasses sculpture, photography, writing, and video. It is often characterized by a display of the negative by way of inversions, elisions, and removals.
