Opening Reception for Gail Biederman: The Feel of a Place
Gail Biederman has created The Feel of a Place from materials ranging from yarn and felt to nails, each tailored and arranged to evoke different elements of Brooklyn's waterfront. Industrial felt represents the historically industrial landscape around piers, for example, while intersecting lines of felt mimic subway lines and other travel routes. Viewers may also notice the contrast between topographies of North and South Brooklyn in the density of infrastructure and transportation grids. The tactility of Biederman's materials, juxtaposed with the abstracted forms they take, highlight the coexistence of our embodied experience of the city with a more schematic conception in the act of mapping.Venue: BRIC House Hallway
