UNTITLED, Miami Beach |Booth C16 | December 2 – 6, 2015

Artist: Julie Schenkelberg “Lumerian Shift”

SiTE:LAB is thrilled to be participating as one of the not-for-profit/artist-run exhibitors in the 4th edition of the UNTITLED. Art Fair in Miami Beach, where we will be facilitating a new installation by Julie Schenkelberg.

Julie Schenkelberg grew up in the post-industrial landscape of Cleveland, Ohio. Her mixed-media installations start with furniture, dishware, textiles, and marble, combined with concrete, resin, and construction materials, to transform notions of domesticity, and engage with the American Rust Belt’s legacy of abandonment and decay. Using the home as a playground for formal and conceptual subversions, the work aggressively disrupts cohesion within the physical sphere. Familiar furnishings rekindle memories or premonitions of collapse, suggesting both the utter destruction of war, calamities, or urban decay, but also the uncanny juxtapositions of fragile substances such as cloth and china, with industrial materials such as rusty metal, heavy concrete, and tool-made marks such as drilled holes and chain-sawed indentations.

Julie Schenkelberg’s work is represented by Asya Geisberg Gallery, New York, NY
