Gildar Gallery is delighted to participate in Salon Acme No. 7 with a project by Stephanie Kantor. In a curiously devotional installation, the Philadelphia based artist presents a room within the historic building  in Mexico City dedicated to a series of male swimmers of a certain age. Rather than the young, sexually available, and often female, bodies offered-up in familiar bather paintings, these aging men float along, eyes downcast or looking off, with expressions that range from determined to confused. They’re out there looking for something. Beneath each of the painted aquatic wanderers, shrine-like arrangements fan-out on the ground. Made up of precariously stacked ceramic vessels and sea shells imprinted with the artist’s thumbs, an oddly pious atmosphere takes shape. Memorialized by the labor of a young woman, what’s become of these questing men, and what they hoped to find wading in the water, nonetheless, remains murky.
