International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) | 1040 Metropolitan Avenue
Jenny Brockmann will discuss her site-responsive project AIR which is currently on view at the German Consulate General, New York. The work takes up spatial and temporal perception and considers the ability of urban planning, architecture and works of art to alter perception. Part of a body of research concerned with how the brain interprets and constructs reality through the observation of space and time, the exhibition builds on several facets of this investigation to consider the role of natural cycles such as light and temperature in urban settings.
Michaela Gleave’s practice investigates the physicality of perception and the structures through which we construct our image of reality. Often temporal, her installations, performances and interventions question our relationship to time, space, and matter, examining the degree to which systems of knowledge and cultural frameworks shape our capacity to understand the universe. Gleave will discuss a selection of recent works that take astronomy and the space of the sky as their starting point, elaborating on the research behind these projects and the multi-faceted nature of their outcomes.
