Holding Apart Parallels

by Blair Zaye
Fuji crystal archive C type gloss print, acrylic reverse mounted

Price: £294.00 (this includes a 20% commission)

This work is one of many abstract photographs in which I have been experimenting with for over the past 7 years in my light laboratory. I have been capturing scenes of contrived light both static and in motion to find brilliant hues and colours, shapes and forms which appear as if by magic.

Its the first time ive let the printing company do all the work, printing mounting, framing and delivering, its a risky move having it sent straight to the exhibition space without sighting it first, but i have so much confidence in the photo itself and in the print studio that as this is the first time i have decided to go the professional route of printing and processing i want to get the buzz of seeing it for the first time there :)

MIRROR/WINDOW January 28, 2010 7:30-10 PM NEW YORK NEW YORK!

January 28, 2010
7:30-10 PM

at LOUIS V. E.S.P.
140 Jackson St #4D
Brooklyn NY 11211
Call 732.552.7199 for entry or info

Mirror/Window is the inaugural installment of a nomadic, integrative video art salon. The salon takes form at Louis V. E.S.P., a new exhibition space located in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York, and scheduled to begin full programming this year.

Mirror/Window focuses on works that meditate on themes of space and architecture by investigating the relationship between public and private spheres, the body within space, and social codes embedded in architecture. The videos are trans-generational and transnational; spanning from a hotel room in Berlin to popular 80’s sitcoms, simulations of a model home to the iris of a human eye.

Presented in a two-channel facing format and running on a continuous loop, the videos are forced to both confront and familiarize themselves with one another, sparking new and unexpected dialogues framed by notions of place and indulged in by the spontaneity of moving image.

Mirror/Window is comprised of the following artists:
Karen Y Chan (New York)
Heidi Neubauer-Winterburn (Paris/Brest, France)
Michael Haight (Riverside, California)
Anne Herzog (Paris)
JJ Higgins (Prairie Village, Kansas)
Mayumi Komuro (New York)
Yaron Lapid (London)
Derek Larson (DeLand, Florida)
David J. Merritt (New York)
Nicholas O’Brien (Chicago)
Amelia Saul (New York/Berlin)
David Trullo (Madrid)
Blair Zaye (London)

Programmed by Preeti Sodhi and James Woodward.

About the curators Preeti Sodhi and James Woodward:
We are interested in works that relate to the city, environment, space and the body. This salon was created using both word of mouth and an open call in order to be as inclusive as possible. The selected theme was intended to inspire artists and lay a foundation for dialogue in what we intend to be a communal environment and experience.
