"Summer Site-Specific Installations: Jenny Lynn McNutt, Megan McLarney, Tricia McLaughlin and Mark Shunney"
2002-06-04 until 2002-06-29
Florence Lynch Gallery
New York, NY, USA United States of America

Florence Lynch Gallery is pleased to present our annual Summer Site-Specific Installations curated by Young-Eun Choi. This years participants are Jenny Lynn McNutt, Megan McLarney, Tricia McLaughlin and Mark Shunney.

Mark Shunney: Untitled (enclosure installation), June 25-29, Opening Reception, June 25, 6-9 p.m. The enclosure series isolates volumes of space in an already defined piece of architecture, heightening the perception of light and time. Mark Shunney uses live feed video to capture an empty and raw finished interior of the structure that he builts, not the activities of people moving through spaces. The unfinished look of each unit stands out and off of the white gallery walls. It eliminates the presence of people and poses the question of what exactly we are looking at and why using the surveillance to capture the banality of time in a manmade space. Mark Shunney received MFA from Rhode Island School of Design and BFA from University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. He is the founder and director of the Brooklyn Front in DUMBO, Brooklyn, NY.

Gallery hours for these exhibitions are Tuesday to Saturday 11 to 6 p.m. The gallery will be closing from July till September and will re-open in September with an installation by Rebecca Smith. >

Jenny Lynn McNutt: Protean Bodies & Coding Trickster, June 4-8, Opening Reception: June 4, 6-9 p.m. Jenny Lynn McNutt is an artist whose work explores the restless human form assembling and dissembling in a ritual space. Her explorations of the human form have mutated into sculptural objects and extended into multimedia performance and installation. In this show McNutt shows groupings of small figural sculptures with whispering and murmuring sound effects. They are mutations of generative boundaries in frozen moments. The porous boundaries, productive of meaning and possibility, are where fantasy and organism are siblings. We are seeing double in a world that has become the theatre of a coding trickster. Jenny Lynn McNutt received MFA from Yale University and currently teaches at Pratt Institute.

Megan McLarney: Landscapes for 9 Monitors, June 11-15, Opening Reception: June 11, 6-9 p.m. This 9 channel video installation features wide composite views of tourist attractions, vacation spots, and vistas from Colorado, France, Arizona, Tunisia, and New York. Developed over the last three years, McLarneys landscape breaks the traditional framing of video work and explores the possibilities of larger, multi-monitor, composite video work. McLarney borrows from the tradition of landscape painting while adding a new dimension of time within the spaces. Appearance of human figure is greatly reduced and the movement in the landscape is minimal, barely there. Its as if you were peering through a window into some other time. Megan McLarney is a bright young artist who holds BFA in Film & Animation from Rhode Island School of Design and had her first solo show last April at ONI Gallery in Boston.

Tricia McLauhglin: Running Animation, June 18-22, Opening Reception: June 18, 6-9 p.m. McLaughlin often work from arbitrary designs and force human behavior to adapt to that structure. Many of the designs are realized in the form of 3D animation since they would never actually be built. The characters that she always uses, Hefty Man and Slender Woman from the software package IfiniD, function as everyman and everywoman. In this installation they are both simply running but in opposite directions. They appear to run only when the viewer is also running. The behavior of watching an animation is now dependent on the active participation of the viewer. McLaughlin received MFA from Hunter College and BFA from Syracuse University. She has also participated in the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in 1992 and the Artists in the Marketplace program at the Bronx Museum in 2001.
