Live Feed-ing by Jeroen Nelemans
Opening Reception: January 13, 2011, 7pm â€“ 9pm
Broward Collegeâ€™s Central Campus Fine Arts
3501 SW Davie Rd., Building 3, Davie, FL.
Chicago-based artist Jeroen Nelemansâ€™s solo exhibition Live Feed-ing explores how changes in perception and scale can uncover interrelationships between natural and artificial systems. Comprised of a site-specific and a video installation, both works on view measure and evaluate how cyclical progressions coexist in natural and artificial systems, and how new relationships can be formed when intertwined or placed within different contexts.
Animate objects become inanimate and visa versa in the work Live Feed-ing, 2006, as two display cases are placed within a larger display case, one containing a working fish tank and the other featuring a monitor display of live video camera feed footage highlighting a specific zoomed-in view into the neighboring aquatic environment.
The role of space and time within natural and artificial orders is further mined and undermined in Six Feet Above, 2010, (pictured above) in which a large plane of Astroturf, suspended six feet above the ground, bisects the exhibition space. When seen from below, a vast network of roots weaving in and out from underneath this plane is exposed, while the placement of a central opening and a wooden pedestal allow to viewer to perch above this â€œfloating carpetâ€ and discover that actual grass is growing inside.
Gallery hours are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 9am-3pm, Wednesday 2pm-8 pm or by appointment.
