Description: Jia-Jen Lin Studio is pleased to present an exhibition of new works on view at Temporary Storage of Brooklyn Fire Proof. A series of photographs, sculptures, videos, and a live performance will be integrated into the exhibition.
The Manufracture Series: Bread, Steel, and Benjamin Moore continues to investigate the segregated yet inseparable relationships between manufacturing and art making within local settings in Brooklyn. Through collaboration with an Italian bakery in Bensonhurst, a Chinese steel fabrication shop in Sunset Park, and an artist and interior painter working in Brooklyn, Lin attempts to re-fabricate the boundaries and to create an overlap between art making, which is conventionally considered sublimated and bound to aesthetic principles, and manufacturing, the processes of which are seldom seen.
This project is in collaboration with Manuel Molina Martagon, Colby Cannon Welsh, NY Brooklyn Bread, and Quality Stainless Steel Inc.
Opening Reception: Friday, September 16, 6 – 9 PM (performance at 7 PM)
Artist Talk: Sunday, September 18, 4 PM
Open to Public: September 15 & 16, 5 – 9 PM // September 17 & 18, 2 – 8 PM, or by appointment.
