JHB Gallery hosts an exhibition of works by artist Jaanika Peerna

NEW YORK, NY.- JHB Gallery, in collaboration with Jetsam Studio, hosts an exhibition and book signing by artist Jaanika Peerna.

Peerna works across drawing, performance and installation platforms. Central to her practice is an expanded conception of drawing that engages the rhythms and movements of the body in broad gestural mark making. Working with the semi translucent material of Mylar, Peerna's drawn lines are often altered and erased by the application of water and ice, manipulated, like her drawing materials, with two hands in whole-body movements. Her wall installations add new layers to this process, the Mylar drawings sliced, twisted, and spun out in sensual arrangements that cascade across the gallery wall. At Jetsam Studio, Peerna will be presenting Cold Love, a new site-specific installation, alongside a series of framed drawings.

To coincide with the exhibition reception on July 15, 5-7pm, Peerna will be signing copies of her new monograph Glacier Elegies, which explores the artist's internationally acclaimed series of performance works lamenting the loss of glaciers and natural ice. Published in 2022 by Terra Nova Press and distributed by MIT Press, the publication includes essays and an interview with the artist, and presents Peerna’s performance work in the context of her broader practice of drawing and installation.

Jaanika Peerna was born in Tallinn, Estonia, and received an MFA from SUNY New Paltz, NY. Her solo exhibitions and performances have been presented at galleries internationally including Haus Gallery, Tallinn, Estonia; Gallery 222, Hurleyville, NY; Real Art Ways, Hartford, CT; Espronceda Center for Art and Culture, Barcelona, Spain; and Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, SUNY New Paltz, NY. The artist lives and works in upstate New York
