Co-Lab Project Space
On the hallowed eve of the day of the dead, Michael Abelmnan presents a beggars banquet of house paint alchemy. If you do not believe, you will be converted. If you cling to the agnostic, you will be freed. If you are in the choir, there will be no preaching. Let the herald devils sing.
"I Put You On A Pedestal" Michael Abelman + + + + +
Project Space (613 Allen) On view during events and by appointment only
An intimate installation in which the viewer both strolls by and floats over a gathering of ancient and contemporary art forms. Abelman’s pieces are both astral roadmaps and geomantic altars that dig into our collective intuitions that lie buried under the modern psyche.
In this show Abelman takes his popular map paintings and turns them on their side, puts them on a pedestal and invites us into the narrative and formal processes of his two and a half dimensional work presented in a format that is both atelier and oracle site.
