John Schlesinger + Taji Ra'oof
Collaboration #1
Beeswax, honeycomb, neon, demo rebar, laboratory clamps

(look up above the Ulysses Bookstore)

John Schlesinger presents site-responsive installations rooted in the ceiling and walls of the space. Made from twisted salvaged demolition rebar, Schlesinger constructs strangely bent neon which mimics and riffs on the rebar. Recycled laboratory clamps hold the fragile neon close to the steel. Cast bronze sculptures and resin-soaked photographs mounted to shattered glass complete the mix.

Independent of the usual neutral gallery lighting the installation illuminates itself both from the back and the front...eerily reminiscent of a deep-water fish living in darkness below the sunlight.
