Davidson, Mark Tribe, Mark Wagner, Carrie Mae Weems, Hannah Wilke.

The Feldman Gallery will present Resurrectine, a large-scale group show of more than fifty artists. The selection of artworks embraces the notion of transformation – the creative act of taking form, appearance, nature, character, or meaning, and making it new again. The title of the exhibition is based on the name of the fictive elixir which restores life as imagined by Raymond Roussel in his 1914 novel Locus Solus and “rebottled” by the conceptual artist Terry Fox in 2007.

Resurrectine, the exhibition, is a guide to the always changing possibilities of language, signifying a rebirth and an expansion or narrowing of language, which in turn is linked to the visions of artists. In the spirit of the fanciful conceit of Roussel’s potion, the theme introduces new ways of thinking and the power of creativity.

As a form of time travel, the artworks incorporate contradictions: a low budget home video reenacts Moby Dick; a Medieval painting of the Resurrection becomes a video game; a flash animation combines the looting of Iraq’s antiquities with 3-Card Monte; trees inhabit libraries and museums exhibit human taxidermies; a mirror transforms the viewer’s reflection into that of Andy Warhol; doilies are stained with menstrual blood and Audubon prints are productively vandalized. We are also engaged by the invention of nursing, fallen angels, a parent’s footsteps to a concentration camp, remembered spaces, the story of the Black film industry, escapes from death, Old Masters reborn, a Cheshire Cat, apocalypse management, a living electronic painting, reenacted famous protest speeches, and dozens of other resurrectines.

Resurrectine is a state of mind, and multi views have been welcomed.

The Bruce Springsteen Born to Run Glockenspiel Addendum CD will be available free. From June 15 to 19, bring in your old clothes, and they will be returned to you in new styles by Junky Styling.

Special thanks to Sean Elwood, Director of Artists Programs, Creative Capital.

An opening reception will be on May 15, 6:00–8:00. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00 – 6:00. Monday by appointment. For more information, contact Sarah Paulson at (212) 226-3232 or Sarah@feldmangallery.com.

 JUNKY STYLING                                    
 Wardrobe Surgery

June 15 - 19

Junky Styling, the London-based recycled clothing brand and collaborative team of Annika Sanders and Kerry Seager, offers New Yorkers the opportunity to participate in Wardrobe Surgery at Ronald Feldman Fine Arts from June 15 to 19.  Their fashions are on display in Resurrectine, a group show of more than sixty-five artists, through June 26 at the Feldman Gallery.

The public is invited to bring an item of clothing to be transformed.  Junky Styling breathes new life into garments that are either ill-fitting (frantic senseless buying), or a bit worn (from too much love).  They make a previously un-wearable into an everyday, one-of-a kind favorite.

An individual supplies an old, ill-fitting, or worn-out piece of clothing for a complete overhaul, customization, or simple alteration.  The service invites customers to take part in the redesign process and to discuss what they require or desire.  All shapes and sizes are invited to Wardrobe Surgery, and everyone can benefit from it.  Depending on demand, the commission is either made ready for a final fitting within the week or is finished in London and posted back.  Consultations for Wardrobe Surgery are free, and prices for the “surgeries” begin at $50.00.

A clothing label, shop, and design team, Junky Styling built a reputation over the last ten years, not only for their tailor-detailed fresh styles, but for also encouraging customers to get involved in recycling.  Junky Styling aims to change the way people consume clothing.

Sanders and Seager began their collaboration as teenagers, making clothes for themselves to wear to clubs.  Officially launched in 1997, Junky Styling is currently located on Brick Lane in London’s East End and participates regularly at the London and Paris fashion weeks.  Original Junky Styling pieces have been exhibited in Vienna, Athens, China and Greece and are in the permanent collection of the Design Museum in London.  Their recent speaking engagements include Parsons The New School for Design in New York and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.  For more information, please visit www.junkystyling.co.uk

Junky Styling: Wardrobe Surgery (A & C Black Publishers Limited, London, 2009) profiles Junky Styling and offers several refashion how-to’s.  The book is available through the gallery for $35.00

“… the Junky Styling look is popular with the likes of Sadie Frost, Gwen Stefani, Russell Brand and Stella McCartney - and you don't get much cooler than that on Planet Fashion.”
Karen Kay, MailOnline

“Junky Styling’s garment-making has a poignant resonance in a neighborhood that historically was important for light manufacturing.”
Marco Nocella, Gallerist

Hours for drop off: Tuesday, June 15 through Saturday, June 19, 10:00 am - 5:45 pm.  For information, contact Sarah Paulson at (212) 226-3232 or sarah@feldmangallery.com
