AUGUST 2021 / WISH YOU WERE HERE / ANAT EBGI   Anat Ebgi is pleased to announce Wish You Were Here, a group exhibition featuring works by Hernan Bas, Alejandro Cardenas, Hulda Guzmán, Soumya Netrabile, and Caroline Walker. Sending a postcard is a romantic gesture. The customary sign off, ‘wish you were here,’ is a conjuring, a way to share your joy with someone far away. Although they can also serve a commemorative and memorializing function—depicting iconic landmarks or exotic destinations. They are tokens of nostalgia, sentimentality, and longing for something absent. The artists in Wish You Were Here present views into the realm of the psyche, portals that meditate on the slipperiness of reality, and contemplative explorations of daily life, transcendence,

and fantasy. (text by Stefano Di Paolo)
