Wasserman Projects presented Fluent in the Language of Dreams, a solo exhibition of renowned artist Michele Oka Doner. This exhibition revisited for the first time the large-scale floor installation Pages I and II, which she created almost 40 years ago for her first solo museum show in 1978 at the Detroit Institute of Arts. For the exhibition, the artist will recreate the original installation and add Pages III and IV, extending the scope and experience of the work and re-contextualizing it within her career’s long engagement with organic forms and the evolution of language. The installation was complemented by a selection of Oka Doner’s large-scale sculptures, works on paper, books, and design objects, made with a wide-range of materials. Together, the works offered a lens into Oka Doner’s dynamic practice, shaped in part by her studies at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and her time spent living in Detroit, between 1969-1981.
