tamara gayer creates a site specific kaleidoscopic installation, which focuses on the local and national monument – the Eldridge Street Synagogue in New York City’s Lower East Side. gayer manipulates, warps, inverts and expands the gallery’s appearance as she reinterprets the exterior and interior of the one hundred and twenty-eight year old landmark.
architectural points are repositioned into geometric patterns and candy store colors, formulating a vibrant multi faceted façade set in its’ familiar urban landscape. the project and its’ subject are simultaneously forward looking and historically grounded, constructing a hyper dimensional space.
the inside is a salute to public sanctuaries and neighborhood narratives.
