On Its Head

  • Location:
    New York

Dam, Stuhltrager Gallery presents

An exhibition repositioning the boundaries of art materials… Turning conventional usage upside down, inside out & onto something new.

Gallery One: Detritus Forest
an installation by Devrim Kadirbeyoglu
A requiem created from/for what has already lived: Evergreens that have grown old enough to be adored, go out of fashion, die and be disposed of. A luscious (yet dead) inverted forest of discarded Christmas trees swings softly- a poetic symbol of consumption.

Gallery Two: Devil's Triangle Reprise
an installation by Scott Kiernan
curated by Jennifer Junkermeier
A standard musical score is composed from mapping out flight patterns between US airline hubs. A new take on audio access to information, raw data is translated into sound. The instrument (a harp), its recorded melody and video translate into a new form of communicating facts.

Gallery Three: Hybrids
an installation by Guy Rozenstrich
curated by Jennifer Junkermeier
Art made with resuscitated/used acrylic blurs the seperating between painting and sculpture. Paint - a commonly used material with traditional practice - is ripped off canvas and finds its own form, exposing the classical dilemmia in defining something by what it is composed of.

Dates: January 11 - February 10
Reception: January 11 (7-9pm)
Hrs: Friday 3-8pm, Sat & Sun 12-6m
