Daria Dorosh, The Changing Room

A.I.R. Gallery
511 West 25th Street, #301, 212-255-6651
February 8 - March 3, 2007
Reception: Thursday, February 8, 6 - 8 PM
Web Site

Daria Dorosh shows her new work on the theme of change, visibility, vulnerability and risk in The Changing Room, a multi-media installation with undertones of the French film classic “La Belle et La Bete,” and a clothing store’s “Try-on Room.” Two new digital print series will be shown: Little Nothings, photographs of tiny sculptures, which invite fantasy and narrative, and Follow the Pattern, video stills from Patternwoman, Ohio Version.

The Changing Room includes fashion items for visitors to try on or contemplate. A Magic Mirror and a web cam post the activity in the gallery to the artists’ website. One “try-on” element is a collaboration between Dorosh and the poet Marcia Nehemiah who knit 20 wristy-crats, fashion components that visitors may model for the web cam on site, along with Nehemiah’s knit nose warmers and Dorosh’s own Dressy Pot Holder hat.
