We Got Lucky, Brooklyn, July 2017.

These are installation shots of We Got Lucky, in a temporary unused commercial space in Brooklyn on Vanderbilt Avenue. I invited artists to submit, recreate or create new works around the theme of experiencing or marking space. 
This idea came about after visiting the Donald Judd House in SOHO. I was thinking of all the potential artwork that we could make if the real estate was not making it impossible in this city. All the pieces that never see the light of day, all this talent suppressed.
The original title was Judd, I think we got lucky , but Zerek Kempf wisely suggested more subtlety.
Anyhow: the artists is the show were: Pierluigi Calignano(IT)Alan Calpe(US),  Jonathan Harris(US), Josh Hartly(US), Karolina Kazmierska (PL/FR), Zerek Kempf(US) and me,(what ever I may be).
The space was made available by chashama.

"Maybe Like This Then", site specific work at Donori, Sardinia for Contemporary, August 2016

Probably my most personal piece, in various ways.Specifically made for the art festival in Donori, the piece consisted of some unnatural, but mostly natural rubbish, that I collected in Donori over the course of 4 days. The materials were then rearranged according to a different logic in a new space with a little help of terra cruda.

I decided to name my large sculptures for 2016 like they name hurricanes; alphabetically by gender. 2016 is for female-like for my sculptures.



Materials used in all: wood, plywood, aluminum flashing,  acrylic paint, hardware
Materials used in some: found Plexiglass, horsehair (from old bows), paper, string, color pencil
Sizes vary : height from 90"for Annette to 20" for Babette.
Length: Babette is the longest: about 96".

One of a kind.

This piece had to happen somehow. It is a weird one, but it was not to be ignored.

"Ah, so this is where the", 2016
Found Plexi Glass, Found Plywood, wood strips, antique table legs, aluminum flashing, glass cloche, piece of glass jar, acrylic paint, paper, string, color pencil, hardware
