Sebastian Errazuriz Lampara de Lagrimas
Sebastian Errazuriz’s Lampara de Lagrimas brings the traditional lighting fixture from accent to centerpiece. Hung at eye level, the large-scale chandelier doubles as an elegant treetop for dozens of taxidermy birds.
Andrea Mary Marshall Fashion Fans
Andrea Mary Marshall’s Fashion Fans pushes female sexuality to center stage, making use of the traditional, often idealized image of a geisha and her accessories—notably, fans. The works on display were produced overnight as part of a performance, during which Marshall sported traditional kimonos and splatter painted the walls with fans dipped in enamel paint all of which was caught on tape and on view next to the works themselves.
Lionel Estéve, Untitled (Pink Vichy, Green Pearls) and Untitled (Green Stripes, Blue Pearls)
Each of Lionel Estéve’s works can be defined as a spatial drawings where colors flow either fast or quietly. By being both non-formal and fragile,Estève’s works are extremely powerful, insofar as they direct the eye more than they are to be looked at for themselves.
Christopher Astley, Groan Hall
Christopher Astley’s deceptively stiff Groan Hall is the result of cement filled (and often familiar) bags stacked on top of each other to create a kind of modern stonewall.
Kasper Sonne, Borderline (New Territory)
Burning through a canvas lacquered with industrial paint, Kasper Sonne’s Borderline (new territory) reveals its wooden framework and pits pristine production against natural reactions.
Adam Parker Smith Untitled (Wallpaper)
Designed with plastic flora, varnished baked goods, candy, and costume jewelry purchased at a dollar store, Smith toys with the notion of false opulence and the absurdity of keeping up appearances.
WXYZ - Laura Wass Oil Slick Hedra
Founded in both logic and experimentation, WXYZ x Laura Wass stands at the intersection of the obvious and the unexpected. Drawing inspiration from science, art and industrial design and their respective materials, WXYZ x Laura built structures through repeated elements. At the intersection of the unexpected and the obvious, the rigorous fuses with the playful in an idiosyncratic dialect. Wass’s site specific installation is inspired by an expertise in industrial production paired with a love for hand-made craft.
Mattia Biagi Teddy 212
Biagi’s iconic tar-covered teddy takes the ultimate symbol of childhood innocence and completely alters its image, while still maintaining traces of the original form.
Kristin Cammermeyer Outisde In
Kristin Cammermeyer’s Outside In presents a deconstructed blend of high and low. Built from discarded materials found in Bergdorf Goodman’s warehouse, the artist crafts a colorful and ephemeral tangle of shapes.
Peter D. Gerakaris Rappaccini Origami Terrarium.Peter D. Gerakaris’s kaleidoscopic window installation serves as a portal to a surreal, alternate reality reality of origami sculpture and bold patterns. All high-resolution, digital imagery in this installation derives from macro enlargement of the artist’s painting style.
