One Foot in Each World


Brooklyn, NY (9/22/2011) Follow any person off the street for one day, and watch her shift - between languages, mannerisms, and states of mind.  He might cover his tattoos for work.  She may dress in drag on the weekends.  He might have joint custody.  She may lie about still going to church.  He may have moved into a neighborhood where he is a constant outsider in a tight-knit community.  Whether it's cultural, racial, emotional, or practical, we all adjust ourselves according to time and place.  But for some people, the overlapping edges of one self versus another are stronger, more defined. 


This exhibition sought work to join vvitalny's installation piece, "Poles on Poles: In Pieces," a sound + poetry installation that explores the intersection of Polish and American culture in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, and challenges the viewer to find the points of beauty in another chaotic daily existence.


“One Foot in Each World” will be on display October 1st until the 12th.  Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 11:00am-6:00pm, and by appointment on Saturdays.  The opening reception will be held Saturday October 1st, 6:00-9:00pm.  Refreshments will be served.
