Lillian Gerson presents: Jetty Deli & Food Corp
A.I.R. Gallery (111 Front Street, #228 Brooklyn, NY 11201) is pleased to announce Rock Jetty Deli & Food Corp, installation by 2012-2013 fellowship artist Lillian Gerson (B.A. Studio Art, '08).
Gerson's first solo show documents and processes the complicated emotions of life in the Rockaways in the days, weeks and ongoing months following Hurricane Sandy. Through scavenged material and handmade objects, the exhibition brings attention to the small yet powerful moments of beauty that emerged from the storm's destruction. In Rockaway, the storm changed everyone's life overnight. The artist's creative projects were put on hold for months, while focusing instead on basic survival, community and re-growth. Rock Jetty Deli & Food Corp features a large-scale multimedia sculpture with audio recordings documenting the peninsula under construction. The exhibition runs May 30-June 23, 2013.
