The collaboration with my dear friend Jessica Segall at 125 Maiden Lane, New York is still on view till 12 October 2015.
Maiden Lane Exhibition Space
125 Maiden Lane
New York, NY 10038.
The project feature my video work “Circles Atoms Transportation (Reengineered)”.
Flutteries, or A Feeling of Impending Doom, featuring works by Jessica Segall and Really Large Numbers (Julia Oldham and Chad Stayrook).
Segall’s work Paradise Begins With A Shipwreck, is a handmade, seaworthy replica of a faering, a Viking arctic sledging ship. Rather than sails, the ship’s mast supports a projection screen on which Segall will present a selection of video works dealing broadly with water.
Including works by Antonio Jose Guzman, Jessica Houston, Jody Wood and Brian Zegeer.
Segall’s work often looks to the future as something that will need to be survived. Her practice has an emphasis on the individual spirit, survivalism, adaptation, and off the grid technology.
Despite this, she describes her work as “radical optimism.” In keeping with this perspective, Paradise Begins With a Shipwreck does not allude to disaster, but to new beginnings, discovery, adventure, and the hope for a new world.
