let’s do it again
Here’s Marisa Gallemit, guest-blogger for Chinatown REMIXED, reporting the trials, tribulations and . . . satisfactions of making her kind of art with a rather unusual material:
it’s may again and that means:
mother’s day (gifts and flowers please)
consider yourselves cordially invited.
i will be posted at HighJinx – a wonderful second-hand furniture shop – my works will hang in the picture window facing Somerset Street West. the lovely and talented Natalie Fournier will be just out front with her special brand of thought-provoking and visually arresting performance art.
i’m working with white zip-ties this time around – and attempting to capture the essence of deep sea creatures, phosphorescence, fluidity. this material means murder for my fingertips – endless burns and cuts, like paper cuts but worse – but i seem to love the challenge of pieces that involve repetitive, labour-intensive construction.
