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.
