‘Fantasy Pieces: Decorative Garments for the Home’ at Nina Johnson
Celebrated for her shapely, vivid ceramic furnishings that nod to Soviet-era aesthetics, Bari Ziperstein presides over not just a fine-art practice but also a homeware brand called BZippy offering everything from planters and vases to magazine holders and side tables. Last year, the Los Angeles–based talent completed a scholastic residency at the Wolfsonian-Florida International University, which sparked the idea for her current show, “Fantasy Pieces: Decorative Garments for the Home” at Nina Johnson gallery in Miami. Here, through November 18, Ziperstein is presenting 11 sculptural objects inspired by Vienna’s former Wiener Werkstätte, a group of primarily Jewish artists and designers who worked across artistic mediums. The resulting series of hand-built sculptures are aimed at challenging narratives and exploring connections between the past and present.
