Camilla Deterre: Absent Without Leave

Larrie is pleased to present Absent Without Leave, a solo exhibition by New York artist Camilla Deterre. Absent Without Leave centers on the physical erosion of the presence of childhood in the urban environment. With this exhibition, Deterre draws attention to the importance of play, its erasure from the urban landscape, and the need to preserve public space, in particular, playscapes, from commercial development. With the widespread removal of seesaws from New York’s playgrounds, so goes action, adventure, understanding and the hidden rewards and dangers of the physical world.
