I’m thrilled to be part of The Weight of Jupiter, a three person exhibition in beautiful New Zealand. I’m in great company with artists Lisa Benson and Zoë Rapley. For the exhibition, curated by Erica Van Zon, I’ll have a ribbon floor installation entitled, You Can Sing Me Anything, 2011. Will post images and links to the other two artists’ websites soon.
Thank you Erica and Enjoy for this opportunity!
The Weight of Jupiter
On view May 19 – June 11, 2011
Opening next Tuesday, May 17, 6pm
Enjoy Public Art Gallery, Wellington, New Zealand
Consisting primarily of gaseous and liquid matter, the atmospheric composition of Jupiter renders the gas giant without a solid surface; seemingly appropriate, considering it was named after the Roman God of Sky and Thunder. To navigate the landscape of Jupiter’s surface, would require a submarine type vessel – one that could withstand the sheer mass of Jupiter’s gravitational force, without surrendering and being subsumed into it’s string of satellite bodies. The works of Lisa Benson, Rossana Martinez and Zoë Rapley in The Weight of Jupiter captures the possibility of a momentary exploration. The nature of the works evoke a delicate and ephemeral experience through the simplicity of materials. Somewhat fleeting in nature, their dynamic offers a quiet consideration into the ways the processes of production were able to develop and unfold.
