Melanie Flood Projects
186 Washington Avenue
October 30 - November 22, 2008
Reception: Thursday, October 30, 7:30 - 9 PM
Melanie Flood Projects is a contemporary artists salon operating from the Brooklyn home of Melanie Flood. The gallery strives to bring artists and art lovers together in a space that is more personal and relaxed than a traditional gallery setting.
In this space visitors can enjoy art displayed in a unique manner that juxtaposes art with life, centering on the aesthetic dialogue of fine art with the haphazard existence of a personal home setting, bringing out contrast and difference, or meshing in unexpected ways.
The aim of Melanie Flood Projects is to create a fresh and informal meeting point for looking at, thinking and talking about art.
Max works exclusively with film and medium format cameras. Focusing on infrastructural objects, his work is generally characterized by urban environments, bold color and an early morning hazy atmosphere. He is drawn to deserted areas including industrial sites, and tourist locations, especially in alpine landscapes. He describes his work as having “a touch of dreariness and abandonment”.
MAXIMILIAN HAIDACHER, a student at University of Linz, will receive his BA in photography in the spring of 2009, and will be having a solo exhibition in New York at Melanie Flood Projects in October 2008. He has previously had solo exhibitions at Galerie Unterhaus in Passau, Germany (2007) and an upcoming exhibition at this December at Kunstraum Grünerhund in Berlin (2008). In 2008 his work was featured in several group shows including: “Best off ‘08” Kunstuniversität in Linz, Austria, Künstlergilde Salzkammergut in Gmunden, Austria, and Regionalmuseum Cesky in Krumlov, Czech Republic.
