17 January 2002 - 16 February 2002

Susan Inglett is pleased to present the work of ALYSON SHOTZ in an exhibition which runs from 17 January 2002 to 16 February 2002. A reception for the artist will be held Thursday evening 17 January from 6 to 8 PM.

In her largest installation to date, Shotz contributes to recent experiments in the genetic sciences with a life form of her own invention. Self-irrigating, mobile, indestructible, her “rubber” tree engulfs the Gallery in a tangle of vulcanized leaves, surgical tubing, and casters. Photographs accompanying the sculpture likewise graft the real and the artificial to suggest the dark beauty of this unnatural science while questioning the wisdom of its pursuit.

The exhibition will be on view at the gallery located 100 Wooster Street/2 Floor Tuesday to Saturday 11 AM to 6 PM. For additional information please contact Susan Inglett at 212/343-0573 and fax 212/343-0574.
