Books Without Words/Words Without Books

June 4- 27, 2010

Opening Reception: Friday, June 4th 6pm to 9pm

Contact: James Tyler, Executive Director- 845-548-8918
Diane Churchill, Curator – 845-367-2366

Four artists from Rockland, Westchester and Manhattan have original ways of using words and books. This exhibition asks questions about communication and expands our notion of the meanings of forms of words.

Leslie Madigan of Hastings-on-Hudson, NY, makes books stuffed with moss and earthy materials, rather than words. Her books document her search for an idyll, and an understanding of nature as the source of knowledge. Many of her works are inspired by and specific to particular sites, such as areas of Ireland, which she has visited and loved. Her "Journey Jars" describe specific metaphorical journeys, presenting the myriad textures and shapes of the tiny detritus of land and water.

Jody Richards, a Nyack resident, has made uniquely shaped books to commemorate the tragedy in Haiti and help us mourn the victims. One book which explodes with geometric shapes is titled "Yon priye pou sa nou konnen y oak sa sa pa konnen yo", meaning "A prayer for those we know and those we don’t know." With Jody, also a calligrapher, the book may include words, leaves, collaged bits of life, but always takes forms that challenge our understanding of a book.

Ula Einstein and Karen Shaw are both artists living in Manhattan. Karen’s work is text- based. She has created a system which translates numbers to letters, thus allowing her to create poetry from grocery receipts and bingo cards. Acupuncture needles in models of body parts hold sparkling bits of poetry generated by meridian lines. The every day is transmuted to a world of brittle and delicate poetry, all based on rational systems.

Ula’s visions take the form of installations where small objects multiply into colonies of forms. Words appear on egg shells; dictionary pages are bound into miniature packages; stitchery embroiders balloons. Tools of work include burning, cutting and stitching and wrapping. Ms. Einstein’s inter-disciplinary work includes methods of obliteration as well as piercing, adding and subtracting. This uncertain "alchemy" transforms words into new and memorable forms.

EXHIBITION DATES: Friday, June 4- 27, 2010

4. Devora Neumark, FF Alumn, at Concordia Univ., Montreal, June 2

Devora Neumark's "The Jewish Home Beautiful" - Revisited at the FOFA Gallery (Concordia University, Montreal) on Wednesday, June 2, 2010: 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

The Jewish Home Beautiful" – Revisited is an interactive live art event hosted by Devora Neumark at the FOFA Gallery in conjunction with the Humanities and Social Sciences Congress 2010. Working with The Jewish Home Beautiful community pageant, which was performed at the 1939/1940 New York World's Fair and elsewhere in North America in subsequent decades, Neumark aims to invite critical reflection about how the deliberate engagement with beauty and home can on the one hand strengthen intracultural alliances, while on the other, perpetuate cycles of violence: in other words, how very often the affirmation of beauty and the settling at home of one population sets into motion homelessness for others. Specifically, "The Jewish Home Beautiful" – Revisited deliberately complexifies and intentionally problematizes the performance of a beautiful Jewish home in light of the Palestinian Diaspora created by Jews settling in the "Promised Land". The gallery will be the site of a dialogue involving cheesecake, video projections and ritualized gestures. Audience participants will quite literally be invited to take a seat at the table.

Eidia House announces a new exhibition initiative for 2009-2012, PLATO’S CAVE. Invited artists create an installation and an accompanying limited edition for the PLATO’S CAVE underground space at EIDIA House Studio.

The fifth artist in the series, Elaine Angelopoulos, creates an in situ installation; "Protect, Preserve, Perpetuate" and unique limited edition (of the same title). She utilizes the underground space of Plato’s Cave to mimic the surrounds of a noted SOHO gallery basement office where she has worked for nearly a decade.

Angelopoulos writes of her installation:
"'Protect, Preserve, Perpetuate' is a summation of my every day functions on the job at a reputable art gallery in lower Manhattan. I focused on basic details that underscore the various persons and things that have traversed the gallery over time. A series of floor rubbings that unify all activities that left markings from the past. A selection of my papers; to do lists, forms, mementos, and snapshots formed into a gridded scrapbook of controlled performatives."

For the "Protect, Preserve, Perpetuate" edition of 15, Angelopoulos uses a vintage Arches watercolor paper (a gift from the studio of Hannah Wilke) to form a set of paper corners to secure an artwork that is absent. (contact EIDIA House for details) "Actions and embedded memories are traced, rubbed and repeated on paper into an enclosed menagerie that will potentially moisten in Plato’s Cave. Like memories, the ecology of time and space mutate the facts that remain." Angelopoulos

About Elaine Angelopoulos

Elaine Angelopoulos, an interdisciplinary performance artist living in Brooklyn, New York received her MFA from Maine College of Art in 2009, and BFA from Pratt Institute (Cum Laude) in 1987. Her areas of specialization are conceptions and productions in installation, performance, video, drawing, and painting—processed and realized through daily living.

To visit the Plato’s Cave installation, Wednesday through Saturday, 1 to 6 pm by appointment please, contact Melissa Wolf, 646 945 3830. http://www.eidia.com/

because I want to play your videos on my UNLIMITED POSSIBILITIES show on Berkeley, California's public access cable show. I am looking for all kinds of art,
music, underground, outrageous, taboo breaking, sexy, whatever videos. No
money involved [hey, it's the underground!]. So you can join the group and leave links there for us to download your videos.

Judging from the first day of submissions, THE U. U. V. BANK will also be
a great place to watch weird sick wonderful videos. So we are having big
sofas brought in... And FREE popcorn!

And there are many more videos [free, uncensored and radical] at THE
