Gilles Clement Gallery - 45 East Putnam Avenue, Greenwich
Gilles Clement Gallery presents
Devorah Sperber + MARCK Exhibition
Through the Looking Glass: alternative viewpoints
October 12 - November 15, 2018
The two artists featured in this exhibition utilize their respective mediums to draw the viewer into a wonderland of optical illusion, playful visual layering and unexpected use of space and scale. The human visage and form take the thematic center stage, presented in the gargantuan pixilated enlargements of Devorah Sperber?s thread spool installations, and the miniaturized women of MARCK?s video sculptures, dancing in an elegant decorative case, trapped in a spinning tank, or posing as the power source of a light box. Invited to experience the effect of the proverbial ?rabbit hole?, the viewer will discover a gallery presentation at once foreign, yet familiar; strange, yet enchanting. The walls come alive with multiple moving picture screens, constructed in wood or metal, brightly painted or distressed; wind blowing, water running, colors draping. In contrast, Sperber?s flat inverted pointillist constructions seem oddly remote and static; yet, upon closer inspection - literally through a crystal orb - the images flip upright and appear in realistic 3-D form. Expect no ordinary art browse ? the eyes are engaged as never before, the brain challenged and teased, and the spirits uplifted by this delightful pairing of conceptual and technical artistry.

A Continuous Thread: Navajo Weaving Traditions
Through November 25, 2018
Navajo rugs are unique because their warp (the vertical strings on a loom) is one, long continuous piece of wool thread. Once the warp is set on the loom, the size of the rug cannot be altered. This weaving method requires the weaver to plan the design and pattern of the rug to fit precisely into the predetermined length of the rug. The ability to conceive and execute two dimensional designs in extraordinary patterns and colors set Navajo weavers apart from the creators of other Native rugs and blankets. Knowledge of this traditional process is an important cultural tradition that has been maintained through intergenerational instruction and mentoring despite the obstacles of displacement, discrimination and isolation experienced by the Navajo Nation.
