111 Front Street, Suite 228, 212 255 6651
October 4 - October 28, 2012
Reception: Thursday, October 4, 6 - 9 PM
A.I.R. Gallery is pleased to present DEEP play, an exhibition of new work by Daria Dorosh on view from October 4 – 28, 2012. The opening reception will be held on Thursday, October 4th from 6 -9pm.
In DEEP play, her 20th one-person exhibition, Daria Dorosh revisits the magical landscape of childhood, and takes us back to the beginning – to touch, to play, to imagine.
The sixteen textile sculptures are described as comfort objects, or toys for grown-ups. Each one is installed on its own shelf and can be picked up by the gallery visitor. They are accompanied by 16 digital prints that situate the sculpture in 19th century illustrations to contrast the romantic dreamscapes of the past with our own. Each digital print is a unique work by means of a custom frame made to complete it.
