at Main Window
Shimmers is a multidimensional environment created on site by Julien Gardair for Main Window. As one walks by the window, one discovers layered shapes of mesh which, as they interfere one with another, reveal volumes and subjects. The piece, made of a continuous roll of window screen, is cut freehand in space without removing any part of it. This sustainable system allows empty and filled spaces, figuration and abstraction to exist at the simultaneously, inviting the viewer to multiple interpretations.
Born and raised in France, Julien Gardair is a multidisciplinary artist based in Brooklyn since 2007. He develops a proteiform inventive practice where he finds freedom within constraints. Works can vary from cut out, drawings and paintings to public art and immersive site specific video installations.
