Soft yet highly structural, Teresa Gejer’s textile sculptures hold their shape as if by some divine grace. Darkly stitched of translucent, muslim-like material, their neutral colors hint at decay, as if their towering forms stood in limbo, on the verge of collapse. Female and domestic associations weave through some of the largest works, which alternately hold anthropomorphic qualities or else kitchen-cupboard and wardrobe-shelving ones. Taken together in installation, the whole is like a flaccid house, a living environment that doesn’t quite work but won’t disappear either.
