Grand Princess, 2023 (video still)

Fraenkel Gallery and Ryan Lee Gallery, New York are pleased to present a joint exhibition by Kota Ezawa at Independent New York. The presentation will feature a selection of light-boxes, collage, watercolor, sculpture, and animations based on found imagery from contemporary culture. Among the highlights is Grand Princess, which will debut at the fair. Incorporating video and light boxes, the piece depicts the arrival of a Grand Princess cruise ship into the San Francisco Bay in March 2020, carrying some of the first known cases of COVID-19. Distilling these images into their most elemental forms, the piece evokes the feelings of dissonance and fear that marked the coming of a global pandemic.
