Mirrorface at Cleve Carney Gallery

Using ink, polypropylene and transparent vinyl to activate the walls, floor, and full-length modernist windows of Cleve Carney Gallery in Glen Ellyn, IL this March, I look forward to creating a new site-specific installation for Mirrorface, a three-woman exhibition of autobiographical work featuring work by Keiler Roberts, Sarah McEneaney, and myself. The exhibition runs from March 9th - April 13th, 2017 with an all-ages opening reception on Saturday, March 11th from 1-3pm. You can get a sneak peak into our work for the show in the video below:

 

 

Seeing (between) Knowing at Aviatrix, Berlin

If you find yourself in Berlin, please join me on Saturday, November 28th for a pop-up exhibition of my latest work at the lovely Aviatrix Atelier. Combining ink and pigment in combination with light and shadow, Seeing (between) Knowing is a paper cabinet of curiosities is informed by my ongoing visual research as well as conversations with scholars at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, where I am working as Artist in Residence this Fall and into the new year.

There will be an informal opening event at on Saturday afternoon, November 28th between 14-17h. Or, you can stop by to see the work there anytime during the weekend (28-29 Nov) between 12 noon and 20h to see the show – just enter through the café and make a left. Aviatrix Atelier is located at Herrfurth Str. 13 in the vibrant Neuköln neighborhood, just down the road from Tempelhof Park.

Aviatrix is a very family-friendly space, organised by a collective of parents in the arts (another interest of mine). In the loft gallery above the café you will find a mini-exhibition of work by children who participated in Kunst- und Wunderkammern themed programs at Aviatrix, culminating in a hands-on Collective Curiosity workshop I led there last week. The results were pretty amazing.

Artist in Residence, Max Planck Institute, Berlin

This fall I have been invited to spend four months as Artist in Residence at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin, where I am working on a new project called the ReDistribution of Curiosity, based on the research of MPI scholars and in my own explorations of contemporary Berlin.

The project will culminate in a trunkload of drawings, a set of disseminatable postcards, a collection and curiosity workshop, and a pop-up exhibition at the excellent artist-parent-run space Aviatrix Atelier in Neuköln. More information as the work develops!
