Exhibition - Gabrielle Teschner Storefront

Tappan Storefront | Steel Wall (Being Built):

 

 

Currently on display in our Downtown Tappan studio space, Steel Wall (Being Built) by Gabrielle Teschner is a temporary installation in the storefront space using paper “steel tiles". The work makes reference to the transitional moment of the building, the print shop directly next door, and the flux of buildings in the area. The “steel tiles" are photocopies of an original fabric work by Teschner. A single three-dimensional tile, in contrast to the many two-dimensional tiles on the wall, hangs from a ladder as if abandoned mid-build.

 

“I wanted to do an installation that wouldn’t necessarily be recognized as complete,” said Teschner. “I’ve always liked catching a business in the process of installing their storefront, like a clandestine glance at the shop’s inner life. When I arrived to the building on 6th Street all its storefronts were in varying degrees of transition. It wasn’t clear to me which were vacant and which were running businesses. An artist’s studio is a similar organism, in which all works are only potentially complete, being built upon and edited all the time. It is yet to be decided, and that interests me.”

 

This transition from two to three dimensions is a recurring interest for the artist. Whether illusory or actual, she often explores how the perception of an object in space relates to our own experience of being in the world.

 

Teschner also reflected on the experience of working alongside other artists in our residency program. “Luke Chiswell was working in the studio downstairs from me, and I’d pass through on the way to my own studio. The work he was making during that time was constantly evolving and being rearranged in the room—swaths of canvas would become paintings or soft sculpture…the next day, the soft sculptures may have been hardened or hung on tree branches. There was an energetic character to both what was happening on the facade of the building (its construction plans and for-sale advertisements) and also its interior (perpetually revised artwork).”
