STANDARD

Karen Gelardi

INFO
Oct 11, 2014 – Nov 21, 2014
In the Gallery

Karen Gelardi is the artist behind New Factories, a network of artist studios and workshops that connects artists, production resources, and opportunities. Working with weaving, ceramics, hand-tufting, printing, knitting, metal fabrication, and cut & sew, New Factories exists amidst fine art practices, design and production for the purpose of originating and distributing new works.

Standard is a collection of vibrant geometric fabric assemblies which are hand-sewn in linen. The body of work draws upon a standard set of shapes and a colorful yet limited palette which aligns with the utopian modernist principles of the Bauhaus where artists and mass-manufacturing are reconciled. Karen and a team of sewers will be constructing 120 unique banners throughout the duration of the show at SPACE, adding to the walls as the pieces are completed.
