tamara gayer, graphic study for ‘the inside’, 2012
100a Forsyth Street, 917 488 3388
East Village / Lower East Side
July 26 - August 31, 2012
Reception: Wednesday, July 25, 6 - 8 PM
tamara gayer creates a site specific kaleidoscopic installation, which focuses on the local and national monument – the Eldridge Street Synagogue in New York City’s Lower East Side. gayer manipulates, warps, inverts and expands the gallery’s appearance as she reinterprets the exterior and interior of the one hundred and twenty-five year old landmark.
architectural points are repositioned into geometric patterns and candy store colors, formulating a vibrant multi faceted façade set in its’ familiar urban landscape. the project and its’ subject are simultaneously forward looking and historically grounded, constructing a hyper dimensional space.
the inside is a salute to public sanctuaries and neighborhood narratives.
