STEFANIE VICTOR & CUYLER REMICK CURATED BY PATTON HINDLE / DEC 16 - 31, 2015
FOUR A.M. is pleased to present a new installation by Stefanie Victor, in collaboration with Cuyler Remick, curated by Patton Hindle.
Undulating between references to a domestic scene, shop window, and a gallery space, Victor's deliberate minimal work is, in its intention, diminutive. A small metal sculpture that employs traditional jewelry making techniques, referencing an everyday object, rests on the deep shelf. This work calls to mind the tradition, ritual, and nostalgia we might associate with jewelry, yet as sculpture, it vacillates between sentimentality and seriousness. It is complemented by a new folded and dyed fabric sculpture resting on the shelf. The softness and familiarity of the fabric is challenged by the particular formality of its arrangement.
Hanging on the wall behind the shelf are Cuyler Remick's works on paper, selected by Victor, these works share a similar aesthetic, blurring the lines between soft and hard; formal and informal. Their presence adds to the back and forth that Victor is having with her viewer: a push and pull between an inviting, familiar scene, and a rarified, abstracted re-imagining of that scene as an artwork itself.
