DESCRIPTION

Steve Turner Contemporary presents ERSATZ, a solo exhibition by Zoë Sheehan Saldaña, including objects and animation created since 2007. The objects consist of intricately handmade, functional duplicates of ordinary objects that could prove useful in emergency situations – matches, life jackets, twine, tobacco, ketchup, lamp black, paper towels, and Cliff’s Notes of Whitman’s Leaves of Grass. The animation, 1 Second / 1 Hour, shows a single view of a Vermont landscape photographed 50,000 times at ten-minute intervals. Played at six frames per second, the images condense one year of real time into 140 minutes.

Materials: ammonia, corn syrup, diatoms, electricity, fire, flour, gelatin, glass, glue, graphite, ink, light, linseed oil, milk, milkweed, money, nylon, paper, paste, phosphorus, plastic, polyester, potassium chlorate, raffia, silver, soot, sulfur, time, titanium dioxide, tobacco, tomatoes, trees, vinegar, water, wax, weather, whistles.

Methods: adding, burning, buying, collaborating, combining, cooling, cultivating, cutting, digging, embossing, floating, folding, grinding, growing, heating, learning, looking, mixing, photographing, poking, pressing, printing, reading, refining, repeating, revising, rubbing, separating, simmering, stirring, stitching, stuffing, subtracting, testing, twisting, tying, typing, waiting.

Miscellaneous: art, commonplace, consumption, craft, reproduction, rescue, security, self-reliance.

Zoë Sheehan Saldaña was born in Massachusetts in 1973 and currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. She studied at Oberlin College, the Rochester Institute of Technology, and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. Sheehan has created solo exhibitions in the United States and has been included in group exhibitions both in the US and internationally.
