1+1: Paraphrasing Gogol
(You and Me and the Garden of Eden)"
by Abby Donovan
The artist, a phrase from Wittgenstein, her fishing pole, and an assistant.
Abby Donovan is interested in the urgency and absurdity of what she thinks of as necessarily temporary and site-specific constructions of meaning. The probable pause of materiality. Hery practice includes actions, performances, and material constructions. Currently teaching at the University of Delaware, Donovan’s most recent projects include: upcoming in November 2009, the presentation “Transmissions from Another World: Artist Apparitions in the Age of Mobile Videocasting” as part of MOBILEFEST, Museu da Imagem e do Som, Sao Paulo, Brazil; in December 2009 the construction/performance Which I Have Made (Attempting Necromancy with Wm. Blake) at the European Ceramic Work Centre (.ekwc) in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands; and in September 2009 “THESE THE HEAVENS OF MY BRAIN,” a performance in the playground as part of the 13th Annual DUMBO Art Under the Bridge Festival in Brooklyn, NY.
and announcing our call for proposals for 2010.
