fold and unfold, is a solo exhibition by gallery artist and Art Omi alumnus Anne Lindberg (2009) that will take place at the Omi International Arts Center in Ghent, New York, January 16 – March 13, 2016.
From the Art Omi press release:
“fold and unfold is part of Lindberg’s new series, “Building Drawings”, which blurs the lines between drawing, sculpture, textiles and conceptual art on an architectural scale. Drawn graphite fields anchor room-sized installations created in fine chromatic thread to create a subtle, rhythmic, abstract, and immersive optical and spatial phenomenon that shifts the physical and emotional geographies of both the space and viewer.
Lindberg writes, ‘within the quiet reserve and formal abstraction is a strong impulse to speak from a deep place within myself about that is private, vulnerable, fragile, and perceptive to the human condition. My work is a mirror of how I experience the world. As I map the surface of the work, negotiating physicality, optics and ideas through drawing languages, my voice withholds, blurs, teases and veils.'”
This exhibition will be Anne’s first exhibition in upstate NY since moving there from Kansas City. In addition to the exhibition, Anne will be on sight for 10 days prior to the opening creating a portion of the exhibition. As well, Fellow Omi alumnus, “hyperpianist” Denman Maroney, will present a solo performance inspired by Anne’s exhibition March 12 at 7 PM.
