LMAKprojects (Chelsea): Andy Graydon, Untitled (Ground)
526 West 26th Street, 3rd Floor
May 1 - June 7, 2008
Untitled (Ground) is a series of new works incorporating photography, sound, and installation that continues Graydon's exploration of media in relation to the phenomenal, architectural, and social constructions that make up our composite notion of place. The latest in his series of "science-fiction ecologies", this work originates in the artist's birthplace on the islands of Hawaii. The islands constitute the "ground" of the show's title, with sound and image recordings forming a kind of informal field study of a place that is at once exotic and yet intimately familiar to the artist, where personal memories, associations and resonances are embedded in each location.
