The eye’s level

Using heavyweight, colored thread drawn taut through space, Anne Lindberg expands both fiber and drawing practices into the spatial and architectural realms. She builds her site-responsive installations by walking hundreds of thread lines across the space – scaling up, and making bodily, the act of drawing. The effect is that of clouds of color suspended in air, a formal accomplishment that considers the light, architecture, and movement around and through a site.

The eye’s level pairs one such installation, composed in pearlescent tones to create a shimmering, luminescent color field, with one of Lindberg’s large-scale pencil drawings on mat board. The exhibition makes material and fixes in time the sensation and affect of a cool ray of midmorning light raking across the gallery.

Lindberg‘s installations provoke emotional, visceral, and perceptual responses to color, light, architecture, time, and movement. Interested in the relationship between deep thinking and composing, especially as the latter develops and unfolds through walking, Lindberg forefronts movement as a significant component in her making, characterizing her studio practice as a paced and daily conversation with place.

The artist’s first solo exhibition in a New York City museum, the eye’s level furthers her investigation into the building of color fields through the accumulation of thread as line, stitched, so to speak, into the walls.

    As visitors enter Seeing Forest, they step into a mysterious, forested zone that exists both in the imagination and in Singapore. In this in-between space called the secondary forest - a threshold between old-growth or primary forest and developed areas, between urban and wild, invention and reality - artist Robert Zhao Renhui invites us to consider a complex web of human and non-human co-existence. Seeing Forest encourages visitors to explore the ways in which urban design can shape the natural world, and vice versa, resulting in a new ecosystem of migrant species that echoes the histories, trajectories and makeup of a city’s human population.
