Storefront for Art and Architecture | Sara D. Roosevelt Park near Houston Street
As a mobile space of love and secrets created by María Lynch and Daniel Perlin, Plush will invite guests to enter and explore its soft interior, which contains secret and reactive sounds. Visitors leave their ideas and words behind for others to hear, both present and online. These sounds exist in a dreamlike environment, and simultaneously reflects and hides the desires of those who engage within its space. Situated in the public sphere of the street, Plush invites users to privately and anonymously collaborate in the sharing of secrets regarding love and relationships. These secrets will then be re-distributed, mixed and mashed up, both onsite and online.
Quote from the artists:
“A unconscious imagination is framed, like a playground of the psyche or fragments of the imaginary. Delirious clumps and unusual amorphous entities are created, where all is curved, round and tactile, condensed with my fascination with the world of innocence and the ludic. A mix of child’s play and fear, femininity, the home, and affective memory, permeates all my investigation. The assemblage, the becoming, creates multiplicity that leads to open meanings, subverting established systems of logic and the discourse of rationality.”
Plush was sponsored by the Consulate General of Brazil in New York.
