Anne Vieux presented solo exhibition same window, different day at North Little Rock’s Good Weather, which ran from September 10 to October 15, 2016.
The New York-based artist deals with “fragmentation and movement through the confluence of digital and material processes”, visualised via the a trance like state induced by our existing hyper-mediated environments. Presenting a site-specific installation, sculpture and painting, modular furniture in the room allows for seated contemplation of wall-hung works, while a floor installation of a mysterious white powder captures movement throughout the space. The recorded traces of the viewer in the gallery mimics the gestures of Vieux’s own fingers across the surface of her airbrushed and matte gel paintings on digital manipulations of light printed on microfiber suede.
An excerpt of the exhibition runs as follows:
“The chest moves out and in. Air moves in and out. Out and in • In and out • Out and in • Concentrate on the somatic presence of the elliptical nature of breathing. The atmosphere flowing through the device of the lungs is automatic and elemental, and a measure of time. Hold your breath as an interlude…”**
