Joy Garnett is a painter based in New York. She appropriates news images from the Internet and re-invents them as paintings. Her subject is the apocalyptic-sublime landscape, as well as the digital image itself as cultural artifact in an increasingly technologized world. Her image research has resulted in online documentation projects, most notably The Bomb Project.

Notable past exhibitions include her recent solo shows at Winkleman Gallery, New York and at the National Academy of Sciences, Washington, DC; group exhibitions organized by the Whitney Museum of American Art, P.S.1/MoMA Contemporary Art Center, Artists Space, White Columns (New York), Kettle's Yard, Cambridge (UK), and De Witte Zaal, Ghent (Belgium). She shows with aeroplastics contemporary, Brussels, Belgium.

"project: rendition" opens @ Momenta Fri, 5/25

Momenta Art presents:

"project: rendition"

May 25 through June 25, 2007

Reception: Friday, May 25, 7-9 pm

Gallery hours: Thursday through Monday, 12-6

359 Bedford Avenue. Brooklyn, NY 11211


project: rendition is a collaboration by JC2, a group composed of
artists Joy Episalla, Joy Garnett, Carrie Moyer and Carrie Yamaoka.

project: rendition examines the concept of rendering through an
installation that incorporates elements of architecture, printed
agitprop, audio, and performance in an interactive environment.

The project title refers to "extraordinary rendition," the Bush
Administration's practice of clandestine kidnapping and extradition of
suspected terrorists to countries where they can be interrogated and
tortured beyond the reach of the US judicial system. While
extraordinary rendition is an extreme form of political repression,
state-induced fear and disenfranchisement are far more common means of
rendering individuals and whole populations politically mute or
existentially invisible.

The exhibition revolves around a five-sided structure built entirely
of one-way mirror, which functions as an inverted Panopticon, or
surveillance tower. Visitors may either observe those inside the
illuminated structure from the safety of the darkened gallery or
reverse roles and become potential objects of scrutiny or fascination
by entering it.

An excerpt from the famous 1630 sermon, "A Model of Christian
Charity," written by the first Governor of the Massachusetts Bay
Colony, John Winthrop, will be available as a free broadside to
visitors. From Ronald Reagan's "Shining City on the Hill" to George
Bush Sr.'s "Thousand Points of Light," Winthrop's Puritan text has
served as the lynchpin for the philosophy of American exceptionalism
for the past 200 years.

Performances are scheduled to take place on site throughout the
duration of the show. Please check the project: rendition website for
performance schedule:

JC2 thanks Brian Webster for his invaluable technical expertise,
without which this project would not have been realized.
