November 10, 2012 - November 30, 2012
For the month of November, Jennie Lennick will transform the ATA Window Gallery into “Sitting Room,” a multimedia installation that playfully investigates the darker side of domesticity and kitsch. This project examines the relationship between consumerism and handicraft by reproducing domestic items made from Dollar Store bric-a-brac and arranging them alongside handmade clay and fabric sculptures.
There will be an opening reception November 20th from 7-9 which will feature a screening of Jennie’s animations and a special performance by Plains of Burning Sand. Plains of Burning Sand is a San Francisco based experimental musical project of Craig Foreals and Maciej Makalowski, who have been playing music together for the last three years and are former members of the bands Nazi Botany and Air Witch. The music is an improvised exploration of moods conducted with a wide range of instrumentation.
