The Sites. 



Julika Rudelius

Dressage. Video installation, 8 min 59, looped. Dressage. 2013. 

Video installation, 8 min 59, looped.

Location: Zankel Hall, 2nd floor.


The dressage features 10-12 year old girls from the Upper Eastside in Manhattan. The young society ladies are immaculately dressed in mini-designer clothes. The film begins with the girls picking out outfits while speaking with each other, the latest cell phone model in their hands.
The mood shifts as the girls begin to tear apart their surroundings. As their wordless destruction continues it becomes clear that they are locked into a room within a room. There is no outside, no real ‘breaking-free’.



Kara Daving


Decks rock’d’n seamen slipp’d from rats, cats ‘n bananas onboard; Umbrellas brought no mercy when devilish skies downpoured. Superstitions kept sailors afloat while exploring the unknown; Observe them today to unravel our commodity culture cyclone. 2013.

Expressive Object. Installation.

Location: Zankel Hall, 2nd floor.


Intersecting the realms of fact and fiction, Kara Daving’s work draws from collective myth, sea folklore and current phenomena to illustrate contemporary consumerism. 
The artist uses the sailor’s world and believes to speak of contemporary fears and unknown effects of our commodity culture. Preschoolers responded to the piece (locker 39, 41, 42 next to the artwork).



Ana Tiscornia

Again. Again 2. Intervened chairs. 2011.


Location: Zankel Building, 2nd floor. 


The artist manipulates tools, pieces of furniture, and other familiar objects. Looking for potential poetics, the artist intervenes the subjects and by doing so creates a cartography of oblivion.



Nicholas Knight


Metaphysical Doctrine (Twice). 2013.

Graphite on wall. 

Location: Zankel Building, 2nd floor.


Metaphysical Doctrine (Twice) takes the form of a sentence diagram, a graphic system developed in the 19th century for teaching grammar to schoolchildren. In the piece, every part of speech is drawn as a line whereas every word occupies a specific position.


Both diagrams are analyses of the same sentence and based on grammatical ambiguities suggesting that the same statement can be interpreted differently.
