Nicole Awai: Almost Undone - Vilcek Foundation
167 E 73rd street - 212-472-2500
New York, NY 10021
Description: The Vilcek Foundation will unveil a premiere installation by Trinidadian-born mixed-media artist Nicole Awai entitled, Almost Undone, opening to the public on September 17th, 2011. Featuring drawings from an earlier series entitled Specimens from Local Ephemera, the drawings in this new exhibition will serve as visual anchors for emergent pieces that seem to suspend, exude—even escape—their wall-bound origins, symbolizing the transition of Ms. Awai's work from one dimension into the next. Utilizing materials as varied as cast and sprayed paper, resin, plastic, nail polish, clay—even a telephone pole—the results are bold, complex three-dimensional structures, which seem to pull, stretch, and tear from the wall, and the memory of their two-dimensional predecessors. Opening Reception: September 16th, 6pm – 9pm RSVP is required, due to limited space. RSVP at Vilcek.org. For more info, visit www.vilcek.org.
