Jane Lombard Gallery is pleased to announce Modern Domestics, a two-person exhibition with Ashley Lyon and Jane Bustin. Using quotidian objects as the foundation for their work Lyon and Bustin’s practices similarly evoke the mixed sentiments found in domiciliary settings: equally comforting and melancholic, durable and decayed. Together they celebrate the agency and strength granted in self-actualization by means of owning aesthetic and sentimental environments, the ability to maintain, preserve and reinvent the container of personal experience. The works featured not only encompass time, memories and human sensation but also access a certainty of selfhood in the particularly gendered territory of the home.
Lyon and Bustin employ methodologies of the emotional labor owed to materials closely connected to shared biographies combined with the physical labor of thoughtful creation. Ashley Lyon’s sculptures are detailed replicas of objects inherently soft in nature with heightened tactile and wistful character; they are meticulously copied into ceramic material, converted into something solid yet easily damaged. During the meditative experience of looking at and delicately crafting these familiar possessions, the tenderness and warmth of home is embedded. Lyon’s duvets, mattresses and floor tiles expand the location of where corporal sensation remains, they oscillate between atemporal representations of everyday items and uncanny beings striving toward the realism found within the storytelling of their unique marks and textures.
Jane Bustin combines traditional and contemporary materials, exploring the dichotomy between their abstract minimalist composition and the sentimental qualities of ceramic, textiles and found objects. Concerned with deconstructing the formal components of abstraction, she considers the properties and arrangement of materials, extending the link between craft, concept and movement. Bustin likens her grandmother’s laundering, baking and crocheting routines to the type of diligence she applies as an artist; folding, flattening and rolling until the organic is contained. The pale tones, reflective surfaces and intuitive organization prompt a tenderness and familiarity reminiscent of a bedroom vanity, a micro space of solace within the home. The artists maneuver a relationship between the object’s ontology and their transformation into vehicles of psychological projection; a parallel to the work’s intimate development in the studio against their perceptive contextual availability in the gallery.
Modern Domestics asserts the complexity of emotional security found in the home and the histories amassed in objects of comfort, those of the life interior. The work affirms domesticity as a uniquely feminine domain, a beacon of safety and transcendence from the transgressions of modernity. Although aware of its unequivocal hybridity with fragility and temporality, it is deemed private, everlasting and manageable against the volatile anxieties of the external.
Ashley Lyon (b.1983 in Palm Springs, CA) lives and works in Newburgh, NY. Lyon received a BFA in Ceramics from the University of Washington and an MFA in Sculpture + Extended Media from the Virginia Commonwealth University. Her work has been exhibited at Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, Omaha, NE; Hunter College, New York, NY; SUNY Cortland, Cortland, NY; The Sculpture Center, Cleveland, OH; Alfred Ceramic Art Museum, Alfred, NY and Jane Lombard Gallery, New York, NY.
Jane Bustin (b.1964 in London, UK) lives and works in London, UK. She studied a Portsmouth Univerisity, UK and Laboratorio per Affresco, Prato, Italy. Her work has been exhibited at The British Library, London, UK; Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool, UK; Ferens Art Museum, Hull, UK; Kettles Yard, Cambridge, UK; Whitechapel Gallery, London, UK; Ingleby Gallery, Edinburgh, UK; Copperfield, London, UK and Leslie Gallery, Berlin, Germany.

The Discussion:
The promotion and sale of art is often presented as a contentious issue with no straightforward method, process or system.

Rules and ‘understandings’ for purchasing art have seemingly developed and continue to develop according to a nebulous set of arrangements.

However, there are guidelines and they can be deciphered. They also can be adapted to the increasingly normative media of installation, performance and moving image in emerging artists’ practice.

Through a growing community of galleries, commissioning public organisations and an increasingly educated audience, the possibilities of sustaining creative practices centred on new and ephemeral media are evolving.

Made in Arts London has invited a number of key professionals – specialising in the creation, commissioning, promotion and sale of new media, moving image, performance and installation – to discuss the topic from a number of perspectives; the artist, the curator, the gallerist and the consultant.

The panel will answer questions from members of the audience.

The panel discussion will be followed by a drinks reception. Drinks generously provided by our partners at Brewdog.

MARCH 2011

art fair off-site screenings of artists’ films & videos

Artprojx is excited to introduce a new pop-up artists cinema venture in association with The Armory Show and VOLTA NY at the SVA Theatre, New York in March 2011. This gives galleries participating at both art fairs the exciting opportunity to showcase their artists’ films alongside films from leading international and local arts production organizations.

The event, which will run throughout the week of The Armory Show and VOLTA NY, offers participating galleries a chance to free up their booth space and show key artists’ films as part of a dedicated, well promoted off-site screening program.

The program is designed not only to promote participating galleries and their artists outside of the art fair environment, but also serves to showcase the work in the best possible screening conditions in the most economical way. The screenings will be free to all VIP guests, art fair ticket holders, SVA students and artists.

In addition Artprojx will curate a program of artists’ films and videos from leading arts production organizations that will be shown within the same context.
