Meadowlands, Tales & Rocks
Wednesday, June 27, 2018
Curated with Zeljka Himbele
The exhibited works trace imaginary landscapes at the crossroads of personal stories, scientific theories, and tales of the Meadowlands, the transformed NJ swamps west of Manhattan, at the limit of which I lived for 7 years. Miniature figures of girls and women navigate unreal geographies. The ceramics installations cultivate temporary symbiotic relationships with the drawings in the gallery space. Beyond that point, their paths draw independent lines.The groups scatter. - Ève K. Tremblay, June 2018
Les oeuvres exposées forment des paysages imaginaires à la croisée de récits personnels, de théories scientifiques, et d'histoires des Meadowlands, ces marais transformés du NJ à l'ouest de Manhattan, à la limite desquels j'ai vécu pendant 7 ans. En miniatures, des figures de filles et de femmes circulent dans des géographies irréelles. Les installations de céramiques cultivent des rapports symbiotiques temporaires avec les dessins dans les espaces de galeries ou de l'atelier. Au-delà de ces points, leurs chemins tracent des lignes indépendantes. Les groupes se dispersent. - Ève K. Tremblay, June 2018
Visits by appointment also available June 27–28
