> DESCRIPTION

The 24 Hour Gallery and Light Bringer Projects are pleased to present Unsustainable Creatures, an installation by artist Cynthia Minet.  Minet repurposes and recycles plastic objects and containers culled from discount and hardware stores, and rescued from dumpsters to construct her sculptures of domesticated animals.  Lit from within by optical fibers and LED lighting, these creatures glow with a life force that escapes our landfills.  Underlying their playful construction, Minet’s sculptures question whether ultimately we will evolve to become the materials that we can’t do without and point to humankind’s dependence on electricity.

Artist Bio:

Cynthia Minet’s mixed media sculptures, sewn drawings and installations combine an interest in science with an investigation of materials. Her artworks have been exhibited both locally and internationally.  International group exhibitions include a collateral event of the Venice Biennale, (2009), and museum shows in Minsk, Belarus, Amelia, Italy and in several venues in Israel. Additionally, Minet has participated in two international artist residencies in Denmark and in the Netherlands. Recent press includes interviews on RAI Television nationwide in Italy (2010), and posted on theArtblog.com (2010). Minet’s work has also been reviewed in the Los Angeles Times, Artweek Magazine and Coagula.
