Entering into the exhibition in October is with Fumy Frig Sour, 2018 by Elena Narbutaite (b.1984, LI) a long laser line will cut across the exhibition space. In Fumy Frig Sour we see a sharp ‘cut’ of light between the exhibition space and the artwork, but also the sharpness of industrial light and tools. The kind of light is used to read and write optical disks, to transfer data. We are excited to curate Fumy Frig Sour with the soft tactility of Rao’s sculpture that allows light to pass through it and a reflective, conductive textile installation of Boelen.
Fumy Frig Sour is exhibited alongside Joints 2016-2019 by Zarouhie Abdalian (b.1982, US/AR). In this work Zarouhie grinds back the surface of simple hand held tools by reducing them to their surface before time has altered them. Zarouhie hand mirrors these tools to create an ethereal quality of light that evokes the aura of self-worth that once ennobled workers who now often feel sidelined by widespread workplace changes. For Shimmer, Joints will be installed in different positions to adapt to Shimmer when other artworks enter the exhibition.
