Fanny Allié: The Glowing Home

Exhibition on view March 13, 2014—April 30, 2014

Curated by Brendan Carroll

Allié’s neon sculpture of a solitary human figure transforms ArtBloc, a mobile art space built from repurposed shipping containers, into a temporary shelter. A sound installation will accompany the work, which features separately recorded voices by people living or working in Jersey City. The songs, which touch on feelings of home, memory, and loss, will be played back through a pair of speakers affixed to ArtBloc.

Kati Vilim: Extempore Refrain : 08/29/13 : 0 Comments

Kati Vilim's installation

Kati Vilim’s Extempore Refrain is an abstract digital projection that transforms the façade of ArtBloc into an audiovisual multisensory experience. Like her hard-edged geometric paintings, Vilim’s digital projection uses algorithms to explore color, form, and repetition. In many ways, this work is a time-based painting. To create Extempore Refrain, she used Processing 2.0, an open source computer programming language that can be likened to an artist’s sketchbook. “There is an interesting relation between animation and painting, and working with both helps me to understand better the essence of images,” notes the artist. Extempore Refrain will launch Friday, September 6, 2013, at 7 p.m., and play nightly. Extempore Refrain is a celebration of motion, light, color, and form.  Extempore Refrain, 2013, digital animation (color and sound), 15-minute continuous loop.

Ann Lepore: Upward Mobility : 07/11/13 : 0 Comments


Exhibition Run: July 10—August 31 

Ann LePore’s installation Upward Mobility transforms ArtBloc—a pair of empty shipping containers—into an interactive outdoor sculpture. By day, ArtBloc is a giant boom box emitting ambient sounds, while at night, it’s a massive light box featuring computer-animated 3-D images. LePore’s subject is the landscape of Jersey City and its historical transformation from rural backwater to thriving urban center. Whether you pass Upward Mobility as you stroll down McWilliams Place or catch a glance of it from Hamilton Square’s communal roof terrace, the installation invites the viewer to stop, look, and listen.

“The images and installations I create are heavily influenced by my experiences not just as an artist, but as a member of a community that is defined by the physical assertions and limitations of a very specific environment,” LePore says.
