> DESCRIPTION

John Tevis a le plaisir d’annoncer une exposition de l’artiste Lizzie Scott, Floating Island, qui sera exposée à la galerie du 6 novembre au 18 decembre, 2010.  Il y aura un performance pendant la réception pour l’artiste le 6 novembre de 18h-20h.

L’exposition multi-média, Floating Island, présente une sculpture et des dessins récents de Lizzie Scott. Remplie au point d’éclater avec des billes de polystyrène, le volume de la sculpture est suspendu au plafond de la galerie à  hauteur de torse. Le visiteur est invité à interagir avec cette masse à la fois bulbeuse et en lévitation, qui lui fait face en entrant, et qu’il doit écarter pour se frayer un passage à travers l’espace de la galerie. Une série d’œuvres sur papier représentent des obstacles et des infrastructures qui surgissent à tout moment dans la ville. Peintes librement avec des couleurs puissantes ces œuvres évoquent le conflit perpétuel entre les objets et les personnes dans l’univers urbain.

Le samedi 6 novembre, le vernissage en présence de l’artiste comprendra une performance chorégraphique qui explorera la relation entre le corps de la sculpture et celui du danseur, et révèlera la frivolité intrinsèque de l’œuvre d’art.

______________________________________________

John Tevis Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of new work by Lizzie Scott.  Entitled Floating Island, the show opens Saturday, November 6th and continues through Saturday, December 18, 2010.  A performance and an opening reception for the artist will be held Saturday, November 6 from 6:00 to 8:00pm.

A multi-media exhibition, Floating Island features a hanging sculpture, and recent works on paper by Lizzie Scott.   Stuffed to bursting with Styrofoam peanuts, the bulk of Scott’s sculpture hovers at torso height from the gallery ceiling, confronting visitors upon their entry into the gallery.  Indeed, the visitor is encouraged to interact with this bulbous but buoyant work, pushing it out of his or her way as s/he moves around the space.  Accompanying the sculpture is a series of framed, flasche on paper works depicting urban obstacles and infrastructure.  Painted loosely in bold, saturated colors, these works bring to mind the constant negotiation between objects and people in the urban landscape.

On Saturday, November 6, the opening reception for the artist will include a short dance performance exploring the implied relationship between the hanging sculpture and the dancer’s body, the choreography of which is determined by the art object and its essential frivolity.

Born in Chicago, Lizzie Scott lives and works in Brooklyn.  Floating Island marks the artist’s first one-person exhibition in Paris and her first with the gallery.  John Tevis Gallery is located at 47 rue Chapon in the Marais district of Paris.  Gallery hours are 2:00 to 6:00 pm, Wednesday through Saturday.  For more information about the gallery, its artists and exhibitions, please visit the website at www.johntevis.com.
