On View: May 23 – June 24
Reception: June 3 (5:30-8 pm)
In Greater Gravity, the home is considered a space that both protects and restricts. Eleven artists carry out acts of archiving, guarding, cleaving, and mending. Artists as bio-parents, foster parents, and the parent-ed, explore the capacious spectrum of these titles. Larger diasporic traces are found among intimate, domestic emblems and daydreams. The inescapable nature of belonging to a place is acknowledged; so too is the necessary work of defining the boundaries of one’s “place”.
The home is both cradle and crucible. A bed and a cage. A stove and a window. On shelves and in drawers are stacked tchotchkes, recipes, and lessons to be unlearned.
Greater Gravity features large-scale site-specific installations, time-based work, hard and soft sculpture, photography, painting, fiber work, and etchings.Artists include Ophelia Arc, Anny Chen, Michelle Chun, Seth Ellison, Dalit Gurevich, Jac Lahav, David Ma, Margaret Pinto, Rose Silberman-Gorn, Shai Tingo, and Mary Tooley Parker.
This exhibition will be on view during the inaugural Port Chester Arts Festival on June 3rd. More info at www.portchesterarts.com
