Main Window, One Main Street
Brooklyn, NY 11201 United States

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.…

Her soft, brutal sculptures combine discarded fabric with industrial materials, often borrowing forms from mutilated fauna and flora in various states of decay, including tree stumps, cow carcasses, and birds of prey.
