Enantiomorphic Chamber

Enantiomorphic Chamber indexes an unrecognized iconographic phenomenon in contemporary art—reflected figures—and proposes a label for it, enantiomorph. Strictly speaking, an enantiomorph is a pair of asymmetrical figures, usually two three-dimensional forms, that are mirror images of one another. Our curatorial stance is looser than this. We take our name from a Robert Smithson sculpture, Enantiomorphic Chambers (1964/65).
