BEGIN:VCALENDAR VERSION:2.0 CALSCALE:GREGORIAN PRODID:iCalendar-Ruby VERSION:2.0 BEGIN:VEVENT DESCRIPTION:

Steve Turner Contemporary is p leased to present Immune Stability\, an installation by Lauren Elder and Amalia Ulman curated by Lucy Chinen. The installation will be arranged as a showroom consisting of two sculptures\, four garments and a video dem onstrating the functionality of the garments. These objects will be present ed together as a survival kit\, designed to cover the essential needs of a nomadic person in a state of emergency.

\n

The form of the objects and garments is determined by their function: pr otecting a highly active person living in difficult terrain. Such forms can be seen in sportswear\, hiking and camping gear\, extreme weather protecti on and military design. The materials used throughout the installation adap t to hot and cold weather and change in appearance from day to night. One g arment combines various fabrics\, including Ecorepel\, a textile that mimic s the water-repellent properties of a duck’s feathers\, and Coldblack\, a t extile that provides protection from UV rays while remaining cool to the to uch. Immune Stability addresses the undercurrent of anxiety that per vades everyday life as one anticipates the next social\, environmental or e conomic crisis.
