Art Fairs during Armory Week 2016

I am very excited to participate in the Art on Paper Fair and SPRING/BREAK Art Show. See either link for further details. See press release below for Shifted Memories at SPRING/BREAK ART SHOW.

Fanny Allié, Chris Bors, Lauren Comito, Caroline Falby, Sofia Hager, Ketta Ioannidou, Melissa Murray

In the exhibition Shifted Memories, the works presented by each of the 6 artists encode, store and recall past recollections. As a metaphor for the human memory process, this act of removing selected data from its original position, copying and pasting it to create a duplicate becomes its own entity, logic and eventually new history.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Shifted Memories

curated by Fanny Allié and Ketta Ioannidou

Fanny Allié, Chris Bors, Lauren Comito, Caroline Falby, Sofia Hager, Ketta Ioannidou, Melissa Murray

We like to think that our memories -recollection of past events – are an accurate record of our history that makes us what we are. A recent neuroscientist’s study (Karim Nader in The Smithsonian Magazine) has shown that the very  act of remembering can change our memories. According to him, it is almost impossible to bring a memory to mind without altering it in some way.

What we think we have experienced in the past may be far from what really happened, the truth slowly morphing into a fake, distorted or re-constructed recollection. Memory would not be an “infinite facsimile” but an ever-changing database, which would create self-forged information that we think are genuine.

In the exhibition “Shifted Memories”, the works presented by each of the 6 artists encode, store and recall past recollections. As a metaphor for the human memory process, this act of removing selected data from its original position, copying and pasting it to create a duplicate becomes its own entity, logic and eventually new history.

In her recent collage work, Fanny Allié tears apart and re-assemble pieces of newsprint images to create characters and habitat structures inspired by her on-going observation of street people in New York City. Chris Bors’s 24 Second Psycho video appropriates the entire Alfred Hitchcock movie Psycho and condenses it into twenty-four seconds. Lauren Comito’s  work utilizes a combination of art making techniques that alternate between digital processes and traditional modes of art making (material manipulations) to create an inventive form of representation by combining everyday moments and ordinary objects. Caroline Falby uses collage as a stream of consciousness technique to investigate her social beliefs and turn them into mix-media drawings and sculptural installations. In her works, Sofia Hager creates an ensemble of unrecognizable and recognizable objects building spaces and stages for figures that often disobey the laws of gravity. Ketta Ioannidou’s digital collages explore the idea of navigating to a place where something new begins, moving towards a source that is constantly moving like a river, but composed of memories. Melissa Murray’s work focuses on the idea of freezing an active moment of thought, her concepts combining multiple environments in one still image.
