PATRICIA BOINEST POTTER: PATTERNS OF PLACE [+]

This video accompanies the exhibition Patricia Boinest Potter: Patterns of Place.

Produced and Directed by John Reynolds
Executive Producer: Mark Sloan

Patricia Boinest Potter creates enigmatic artworks in the form of three-dimensional maps that she refers to as Isomorphic Map Tables and 1:1 Map Insets. Ostensibly representing a one-hundred-mile stretch of northern Alabama, these works also expand outward to the cosmos, then inward again into the dark energy of particle physics. The exhibition will include a series of six Map Tables and one hundred 1:1 Map Insets. The show offers a tantalizing mix of technical experimentation, metaphoric expansiveness, and curiosity in every square inch. Curated by Mark Sloan, director and chief curator of the Halsey Institute, the exhibition also features a 120-page color catalogue. The exhibition will travel for several years throughout the United States after it debuts in Charleston.

SOMETHING TO TAKE MY PLACE: THE ART OF LONNIE HOLLEY [+]

This video accompanies the exhibition Something to Take My Place: The Art of Lonnie Holley. The Halsey Institute commissioned acclaimed videographer John David Reynolds to create a mini- documentary about Lonnie Holley. In the video, the artist talks about his creative process, his artistic inspirations, and his hopes for the future.

Produced and Directed by John Reynolds
Executive Producer: Mark Sloan

The Halsey Institute has organized a multi-faceted showcase of American artist and musician Lonnie Holley. This comprehensive project features a exhibition, video, live concert, and monographic catalogue. This is Holley’s first solo museum show since 1994 and will feature a selection of his assemblage works since the early 1990s, with an emphasis on recent work. Holley incorporates natural and man-made objects imbued with cultural and artistic associations into narrative sculptures commemorating places, people, and events.

He creates spontaneous and improvisational work by editing and repurposing materials and objects. He presents concepts poetically by utilizing memory and storytelling to catalyze thought. The power of Holley’s work derives from the multiple associations brought forth by new juxtapositions and innovative combinations of familiar objects. These collisions excite the faculties of memory and meaning in the viewer, as his works trace the artist’s raw and honest attempt to turn a thought into a thing.

SET IN STONE: ZEN GARDEN INSTALLATION BY LONG-BIN CHEN [+]

Set in Stone:
Zen Garden Installation by Long-Bin Chen

Directed by Dave Brown
Original Soundtrack: Nathan Koci
Producer: Karen Ann Myers

The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art commissioned Rebound artist, Long-Bin Chen, to create a site-specific sculptural work concurrent with the exhibition Rebound: Dissections and Excavations in Book Art. Chen created the work during a residency (May 1 – 23, 2013), using books from the Charleston community. College of Charleston students Tommy Fox and Jordan Fowler, and sculpture studio technician Michael Morrison were Chen’s studio assistants during the residency.

Long-Bin Chen explores different cultural meanings, and seeks to combine ideas and concepts from the East with those of the West. He works with local printed material from the communities in which he is an artist-in-residence, including telephone books, magazines, and other cultural remnants of our information society. At first glance, the sculptures appear to be stonework, and most viewers are surprised to learn that Chen’s sculptures are soft and made from paper.

LONG-BIN CHEN
Born: Taipei, Taiwan. Lives/works: Bronx, New York

Long-Bin Chen received a MFA from the School of Visual Arts, New York, and a BFA from Tung-Hai University, Taiwan. He was the recipient of a Joan Mitchell Foundation Award in 1996, and a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts in both 1997 and 1998. He has exhibited widely in the United States, Germany, Taiwan, China, and Hong Kong. Recent solo exhibitions include Continental Express, Frederieke Taylor Gallery, New York; Burning Book, 798 Gallery, Beijing, China; icon & idea, Plum Blossom Gallery, Hong Kong; and Long-Bin Chen Book Art, Nou Gallery, Taipei, Taiwan. His most recent group exhibitions include Buddha Spur, Bochum Museum, Germany, and Do A Book, at White Space, Beijing. He is represented by Now Contemporary Art Gallery, Miami, and the Frederieke Taylor Gallery, New York.

This video accompanies the exhibition entitled, Rebound: Dissections and Excavations in Book Art.
