LMCC is pleased to present Floating World, a group exhibition of works created by the visual artists-in-residence in the inaugural session of Swing Space in Building 110: LMCC’s Arts Center at Governors Island. Each of the artists who participated in this residency session has been influenced by their time on the Island, as well as the daily voyage there and back. The collection of works presented in Floating World will reveal the artists’ diverse processes from photography to video to sculpture and installation. Some work directly interprets aspects of the landscape, the seascape, the architecture, topography, and history of the Island, while other work demonstrates the exciting response to an intense period of time in-residence on this “floating world.”
Featuring: Jae Hi Ahn, Rachel Bacon, Jessica Bruah, David Colosi, Jessica Feldman, Jenn Figg and Matthew McCormack, The Friendly Falcons and Their Friend the Snake (Jeffrey Kurosaki and Tara Pelletier), Moo Kwon Han, Wojciech Gilewicz, GH Hovagimyan, Intake Manifold/Ouida Biddle, The Shining Mantis (Ernest Concepcion and Mike Estabrook), Sungmi Lee, Sunghee Pae, Birgit Rathsmann, Larry Shea, Hidemi Takagi, Work Progress Collective, Chin Chih Yang, and Maeung Gyun You.
