At Such and Such a Time
September 14 - October 22, 2016
At Such and Such a Time is a series of proposals for architectural structures, photographed with a large-format camera on instant film. The photographed forms are studies of a structure found in a neighborhood park. (On second look, it was actually a heavy blanket, stiff enough to stand on its own as a cavernous dome and become a dwelling.) The photographs are displayed on supports in the gallery: plywood planks and a marble slab that will later become a console in the artist’s home.
This exhibition takes as a model two sets of works by artist Isa Genzken: Fuck the Bauhaus/New Buildings for New York, 2002, an installation of architectural models and plinths made of found objects; and a series of cast-concrete and steel sculptures from the late ’80s that suggest architectural spaces.
