Opening Reception April 5, 6-9pm
Other Thursdays in April 6-9pm
or by appointment
I dont know if you know this, as I am behind, always just behind, but
the next exhibition at VONZWECK will be by Karen Reimer. I dont have a
bio to send along, but you might already know her work, shes been around
Chicago for a while, earned an MFA from U of C, Artadia Grant you know, the
deal. She has shown a lot, especially with Monique Meloche who actually represents
her and seems cool about Karen doing this project here, which is great. Karens
work, in case the name isnt ringing a bell, falls into fiber or maybe
conceptual fiber if the latter is a category, like beautiful and elaborately
worked embroideries- sometimes of everyday things like loose leaf and receipts,
scraps of paper, or at least those were the first ones I saw and Ive always
thought they were great. Moniques
website has some really nice images if you dont know what Im talking about.
Anyhow this is a new project- or the beginnings of one--involving prime numbers and pillowcases and relying about equally on the traditional practices of early Conceptual art and little old Mennonite ladies, a combination which makes some kind of perfect sense to Karen and far be it from me to say different, and I'm sure it will work really well with the particulars of VONZWECK and I really hope you will come see it.
