ITP Alum, Molly Schwartz, opens her animated exhibition DRIFTERS, curated by Fillmore Projects for Kinescope Galery. The installation is viewable outside, daily from 4pm-10pm, now until early January. Viewable from the street daily from 4-9pm, DRIFTERS is an installation depicting an animated, migratory world—an alternate look at human movement, property, ownership, and the fictional possession of space.
Comprised of a projection onto the large four-paned gallery window, with luminescent line drawings on the walls behind, Schwartz creates figures that are in perpetual motion, drifting toward an unseen destination. There is a redundancy to these forms, projected in a window, in a building, on a block, within a grid, in a city. The bodies, as well as our own bodies, are removed from this replicating series of straight lines. Permanence is the fiction, impermanence is the reality/fact.
Opening reception this Sunday, December 9 from 5pm-7pm.
Kinescope is located at 616 East 9th Street (B/C). Please stop by to see the installation Sunday and then warm up with us around the corner at Royale (157 Ave C).
