ArtSlant - Recently added en-us 40 - On Stellar Rays - January 11th, 2015 - February 14th, 2015 <p>The onset of catastrophe is not signaled by the sense of everything falling through the dark and ending in accidental death: everything, including a catastrophe, has a moment-by-moment structure, a structure that is beyond measurement or comprehension, that is maddeningly complex or must be conceived in quite another manner, one in which the degree of complexity can be articulated only in terms of images that seem impossible to conjure since time has slowed down to the point that the world has become indifferent to circumstances and various terrible preconditions have arrived at a perfect universal conclusion, that being because they are composed of intentions, because the moment is the result of unconscious choices, because a key doesn&rsquo;t immediately fit into the ignition, because we do not start in third gear then move down to second but because we start in second and move into third as we move down the hill then turn onto a highway above the village, because the distance before us is like looking down a tunnel, because the greenery on the boughs still smells of morning dew, because of the death of a dog and someone&rsquo;s badly executed maneuver when turning left, that is to say because of one missed choice or another, of more missed choices and still more missed choices ad infinitum, all those maddening had-we-but-known choices impossible to conceptualize because the situation we find ourselves in is complicated, determined by something that is in the nature of neither God nor the devil, whose ways are impenetrable to us and are doomed to remain so because choice is not simply a matter of choosing, but the result of that which might have happened anyway.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p align="right">-L&aacute;szl&oacute;

an installation for Open Source Gallery.</p> <p>In Lapschina&rsquo;s work, communication is key. Lapschina is well-known for her systematic and methodical investigation into social issues through the exploration of malfunctions and opposing factors. She explores not only the outcomes of choices, but what opportunities are being missed by having to choose. &ldquo;Yes/No&rdquo; is a spatial installation of two light objects produced from sixteen standard fluorescent tubes. Illuminated against a stark background, two choices are clear with little in between but a limbo: &ldquo;Yes&rdquo; and &ldquo;No.&rdquo;</p> <p>Visitors are welcomed into a space where they may move freely between dualities without reaching a decision. However, while the viewer is free to choose, one may not have the choices of &ldquo;Yes&rdquo; and &ldquo;No&rdquo; simultaneously. On one side there is the affirmative of &ldquo;Yes,&rdquo; but by simply turning around, it now becomes &ldquo;No.&rdquo; In &ldquo;Yes/No,&rdquo; opposing ideas do not clash, but still remain on opposite sides of the coin.</p> <p>Lena Lapschina (Austrian, born Russian) graduated from State Stroganow University of Fine and Applied Arts in Moscow. She lives and works in Vienna and Lower Austria. She won the Austrian State Grant for Video and Media Art in 2011.</p> <div>&nbsp;</div> Fri, 19 Dec 2014 22:08:45 +0000 Jane Dickson, Marguerite Van Cook, Peggy Cyphers, Brigitte Engler - Dorian Grey Gallery - January 3rd, 2015 - February 8th, 2015 <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: #cc9900; font-size: large;"><strong><span style="font-family: 'book antiqua', palatino;"><span style="color: #cc3300;">DORIAN GREY GALLERY</span></span></strong></span></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: #cc9900; font-size: large;"><strong><span style="font-family: 'book antiqua', palatino;"><span style="color: #cc3300;"><span style="font-size: small;"><span style="color: #180600;">437 East 9th St., NYC</span><br /></span></span></span></strong></span></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: #cc9900; font-size: large;"><span style="font-family: 'book antiqua', palatino;"><span style="color: #cc3300;"><span style="font-size: small;"></span></span></span><strong><span style="font-family: 'book antiqua', palatino;"><span style="color: #cc3300;"><span style="font-size: small;"><br /></span></span></span></strong></span></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: #cc9900; font-size: large;"><strong><span style="font-family: 'book antiqua', palatino;">Places and Things</span></strong></span></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong><span style="font-family: 'book antiqua', palatino;"><span style="color: #cc9900;">Jane Dickson &nbsp; Marguerite Van Cook &nbsp; Peggy Cyphers &nbsp; Brigitte Engler</span>&nbsp;</span></strong></span></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: #cc9900; font-size: medium;"><strong><span style="font-family: 'book antiqua', palatino;">January 3 - February 8, 2015</span></strong></span></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'book antiqua', palatino;"><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong><span style="color: #cc3300;">Opening Reception: January 6th, 6-9 PM </span></strong></span></span></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'book antiqua', palatino;"><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong><span style="color: #cc3300;">RSVP :</span></strong></span><a href="" rel="nofollow"></a></span></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: 'book antiqua', palatino;">This group show brings together four artists&lsquo; different representations of "place" and with its ambiguously opened ended title --"and things"--it asks, what are the "things" that matter here?

Sherry Karver&rsquo;s media are photography and painting, but her method is literary, exposing our most intimate foibles.

Artists have commonly employed repetition&mdash;the creation of artworks in series or the making of multiples and copies&mdash;in their work for a variety of reasons, ranging from the commercial to the subversive. Yet, crucial differences are often embedded within the process of iteration. <em>Repetition and Difference</em> brings together objects from the Museum&rsquo;s collection and works by contemporary artists that examine how differences and derivations can reveal significant meaning and who have consistently returned to ideas of repetition and difference as a means of exploring its formal possibilities and social implications. The exhibition is titled after Gilles Deleuze&rsquo;s seminal text <em>Difference and Repetition</em>, first published in French in 1968, a landmark book that fundamentally questioned concepts of identity and representation to propose how multiplicity replaces the ideas of essence, substance and possibility.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Repetition and Difference</em>&nbsp;historic works:</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Hanukkah Lamps<br /> Marriage Contracts<br /> Mezuzah Cases<br /> Pillar Figurines<br /> Skullcaps<br /> Spice Containers<br /> Torah Binders<br /> Tyrian Shekels</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Repetition and Difference</em>&nbsp;is curated by Susan L.
