Friedman Benda will present Midden Heap, an immersive installation by Misha Kahn. Midden Heap was born out of Kahns scavenging missions to Dead Horse Bay in the Rockaways, a stretch of beach where trash mounds cover the shoreline in the place of sand. Through a combination of weaving, metal cladding, glassblowing, and bronze casting, Kahn juxtaposes rich materials with found objects, discarded possessions and garbage, resisting the urge to categorize or prioritize one material over the other.
