Laurel Nakadate works in video, photography, and feature-length film. Good Morning, Sunshine (2009), a more recent work in which Nakadate enters the bedrooms of young women, wakes them, and instructs each to strip down to their underwear for the camera. Nakadate’s two features,Stay the Same Never Change (2009) and The Wolf Knife (2010) mine similar terrain-the power and fragility of the adolescent female body. The exhibition is also the premiere of Nakadate’s latest photographic series, 365 Days: A Catalogue of Tears, currently in progress. These photographs document a year-long performance that began on January 1, 2010, in which the artist documented, and continues to document herself before, during, and after weeping each day. Nakadate received a MFA from Yale University in 2001. Her works have been exhibited at Leslie Artworks + Projects, Chalk Horse Australia, Danziger Projects, New York, and Daniel Silverstein Gallery, New York. She is currently represented by Leslie Tonkonow Artworks + Projects in New York City.
