Kate Newby: All Parts. All the Time.

Kate Newby’s work All parts. All the time. engages two sites, Olive St. Garden and Cooper Park, both within blocks of ISCP in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn. For this work, Newby employs semi-precious and industrial materials to create an embedded concrete puddle in the center of Cooper Park. At Olive St. Garden, the artist hangs porcelain sculptures from trees and anchors a concrete bench made to resemble a pile of rocks nonnative to its immediate surroundings.

As with past works, Newby’s installations are developed in response to everyday built environments including carpets, windows and curtains, steps and passageways. Each gives evidence to the space as an inhabited or occupied site, but can also be used to interrupt, reconsider or challenge the unspoken norms of an environment or situation. In addition, for All parts. All the time., British artist Paul Elliman contributed a poster which is displayed at Olive St. Garden.

Participatory Project All parts. All the time. follows past collaborations between ISCP and the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation. Installations by Uri Aran and Luisa Rabbia at Powers St. and Olive St. Gardens were part of a larger site specific project, In back of the real. Olive St. was also the site of an evening program and site for the launch of the book Apogee, by artist group nüans (Elmar Hermann).

Kate Newby (born 1979) lives and works in Auckland, New Zealand. Her exhibitions include: SUNDAY art fair, London; Auckland Art Gallery, New Zealand; Hopkinson Cundy, New Zealand; GAK Gesellschaft für Aktuelle Kunst, Germany; Witte de With, The Netherlands; Museo de Arte Zapopan (MAZ), Mexico; and The Adam Art Gallery, New Zealand.

Lotte Van den Audenaeren: Potentialis

In Potentialis, Lotte Van den Audenaeren’s most recent site-specific urban intervention, text becomes a timekeeper, eroding over a period of months or changing with light and the movement of passersby. At Moore St. Market, her text-based installations in vinyl adhesive film offer a series of apparitions simultaneously present and absent. As light and movement vary throughout each day, so do each of the works, at times blending into the existing market activities.

Van den Audenaeren’s installation is the second Participatory Project in a series of works by ISCP residents at Moore St. Market, one of New York City’s few remaining indoor food markets. In December 2011, ISCP resident Minja Gu opened Atlantic Pacific co., a fully operational yet fictional rare goods import/export business. Graduate art students participating in the ISCP Studio Assistant Program assisted in the production of both Atlantic Pacific co. and Potentialis.

Lotte Van den Audenaeren (born 1979) lives and works in Brussels. She is a graduate of Sint-Lukas Brussels University College of Art and Design. She participated the Erasmus program at Fontys University of Applied Sciences, Tilburg, The Netherlands. Van den Audenaeren received the Award Legacy Franciscus Pycke and became Coming People laureate at S.M.A.K., Ghent, Belgium. Recent exhibitions include: Cultuurcentrum Strombeek Grimbergen vzw, Brussels; Nadine, Brussels; Unicredit Pavillon, Bucharest; Galerie Fortlaan 17, Belgium; VOLTA Art Fair, New York; and Larissa Goldston Gallery, New York.

Salon: Sandra Dukic & Boris Glamocanin & Marko Markovic

Artist collective Sandra Dukic & Boris Glamocanin will present their project LJubija Kills, a long-term installation and intervention. The artists use the town of Ljubija, Bosnia to focus on social activism through art and society’s use of the lives of its citizens as unwanted waste. Ljubija Kills emerged from their participation in activist and humanitarian work with women in the local community.

Marko Markovic will present his recent project, American Spring, focusing on the Occupy Wall Street movement happening in the United States. This work looks at the movement and its actors. Markovic will show his video work profiling actions and performances during the six-month anniversary of the Occupy movement in Zuccotti Park and Union Square in New York City.
