“Josephine Pryde is attuned to how our egos are shaped by embodied encounters. In works shown at Gandt, she infuses the sterile atmosphere of commodity and fashion photography with a visceral edge of confinement, abandonment, and permeability.” —Hiji Nam https://t.co/oNw0yphAN3https://t.co/0gLVLTZH3l
