NEW YORK—Touching upon aspects of light, form, and color, works by Lynn Aldrich, Sandra Cinto, Olafur Eliasson, Teresita Fernández, Liam Gillick, Christian Marclay and Jorge Pardo will be exhibited in the front gallery at the Paula Cooper Gallery at 534 West 21st Street. This show, which runs from 9 June through 21 July 2000, is curated by Paula Feldman.
Installed in the entranceway, Marclay’s Sound Sheet, a curtain of clear sewn flexidiscs from 1990, forms a partition that defines this front space. Cinto’s small white table with hanging pieces of bulbous glass similarly engages properties of translucence. Three inverted lampshades of various colors by California artist Lynn Aldrich, installed on one wall, and hanging lamps by Jorge Pardo, reference artificial, interior light sources. Conversely, Eliasson’s sculpture consists of a burning candle on top of a small circular mirror. Patches of colored plexiglass alternate with blank space in the two-part, anodized aluminum frame of Gillick’s Consultation Screen. Fernández’s recent drawings in the reception area depict luscious, concentric shapes, each of which is named after historically significant hurricane. This reference recalls the pre-1978 practice of solely assigning female names to these natural disasters.
A 1965 sculpture by Hans Haacke, along with a recent installation by Tony Feher and works by Céleste Boursier-Mougenot, will be on view in the main gallery.
