A map of the world that does not include utopia is not worth glancing at.
-Oscar Wilde

BODY UTOPIA creates a visionary space that honors ideas and representations of the nonconforming body – a body that does not subscribe to cultural ideals, whether through size, age, disability, ethnicity, gender presentation, or “queer”, self-chosen, outlier identity. The exhibition features photography by Chitra Ganesh and Pinar Yolaçan; sculpture by Constantina Zavitsanos; painting and drawing by Clarity Haynes and Riva Lehrer; and video by Sondra Perry.

BODY UTOPIA embodies an inclusive feminist point of view and invites questions, such as: what does it mean to represent a disabled body? A survivor’s body? What is discovered through the exploration of seemingly oppositional states such as trauma, sexual agency, and spirituality?

Lehrer and Haynes use representational portraiture to define the formal characteristics of the figure, such as the curve of a breast, the angle of an elbow, the presence of a wheelchair. Their work encourages identification with the vulnerable self and other. Zavitsanos’ work, also portraiture, leans towards abstraction, conveying the presence and absence of the body via the imprint it leaves on its environment. Ganesh and Perry’s work evokes corporeality through metaphor. Ganesh employs distortions of scale to imagine a spiritual anti-Eden – an impossible state that is at once powerful and ethereal. Perry documents an intrepid physical and political intervention into public space, keenly expressing the awkward humor of not blending into one’s surroundings. Yolaçan delves into the world of fashion, invoking ideas of body modification, sex play, costuming, and theatrical avatars.

The artists in BODY UTOPIA describe both the jouissance and the challenges of embodiment. BODY UTOPIA is an arena where alternate spaces and inner mythologies can be shared and revealed, thereby exposing points of view that engage and challenge assumptions about the body.

Trestle Gallery will publish a catalogue of the work in the show with an essay by Clarity Haynes and an introduction by Mary Negro.

Honorem: Three Seasons at Black Forest Farm

Michael Kukla

Jeskyne

Artist’s Reception: Saturday, September 26, 5-8pm
Exhibition Dates: September 26 – November 8, 2015

Smack Mellon is pleased to present Karin Giusti’s monumental installation Honorem: Three Seasons at Black Forest Farm and Michael Kukla’s first large scale site-specific project Jeskyne.
Karin Giusti’s installation Honorem: Three Seasons at Black Forest Farm addresses the emotions of grief and mourning in the public and private sphere. Using sculpture and photography, Giusti captures memories of her life at a remote farmhouse with her late partner Stephen G. Schwarz, a firefighter and 9/11 First Responder. Giusti’s method of photographing the site in the round creates an enclosed space not meant for living organisms, but rather for memories alone. The digitally stitched photographs are constructed into kaleidoscopic pillars lit from within; transforming Smack Mellon’s existing columns into rows of glowing sentinels, majestically standing guard within the darkened gallery.

Michael Kukla’s installation, Jeskyne (Czech for “cave”), also takes cues from the formidable effects of time and nature. Exploring the elasticity and permeability of an object’s surface, Kukla creates an immersive web of cellular forms blended seamlessly into the gallery’s architecture. Like large fossils, these hand sculpted monochromatic façades compress time into positive and negative space.
