Art in Odd places caught up with Chris Twomey, AiOP alum 2005, after her recent successful show ASTRAL FLUFF: Carnal Bodies in Celestial Orbit” at the Creon Gallery.
Who is Chris Twomey?
AIOP: How was your Art in Odd Places experience?
Chris: Great – I installed a stroller in front of the store Enchantment at 9th Street between Second and Avenues.
AiOP:Walk us through your thought process in creating your piece for Art in Odd Places
Chris: I imagined a stroller that had the room of a 16 year old in the space of a two year old, chained up to a railing, unattended. It was an interesting experience.
Chris: Think out of the box. Don’t go for the usual. Stretch limits.
Chris:Working on a survey exhibition of my work over the years at WESTBETH Gallery. A catalogue with an essay by Eleanor Heartney will accompany the exhibit. Opens July 10, 2010
AiOP: Any final words?
Chris: Keep up the good work AiOP!
Thanks Chris and we look forward seeing your exhibition this coming July!
