From December 3–5, ICI will be at NADA’s new location at the Fountainbleau Hotel, Miami Beach, with a presentation of our 2015 limited edition created for us by Jessica Stockholder, Two and Fro, 2015.
With a practice rooted in installation art, Stockholder combines objects to make new forms like a sculptor – yet uses color and composition like a painter.
She creates narratives and moments of magic by forging delicate relationships between the objects that compose her work. In Two and Fro, for example, stories emerge as the result of a simple juxtaposition. Stockholder brings together two common objects, a pair of car side-view mirrors, facing each other. One is displaced onto a “pop-art” zigzagging metal mesh plate, so that it faces the other with a warped perspective. The stories slowly begin to unfold in one’s imagination: now in close proximity, the mirrors allude to the absence of the car that usually separates them: a crash? Each mirror is printed with a dot of color that resembles an eye in a cubist painting. Two eyes look into each other, they almost touch, opening up a world of reflective infinity.
A pioneer of contemporary installation art, Stockholder has been the subject of solo exhibitions at Dia Art Foundation, MoMA PS 1 New York, and the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, among many other art institutions; and her work has been seen in numerous group exhibitons internationally. She has realized public art installations at UCSF (2014), SFMOMA (2013), the Chicago Loop Alliance (2012), and in New York’s Madison Square Park (2009), and internationally in Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, and Switzerland.
We’ll also be bringing along some favorites by Marina Abramović, John Baldessari, Robert Burnier, and Robert Rauschenberg.
