Running Out of Thread is Constance Slaughter’s first solo show in New York. Constance’s work is both playful and dark. Her light suspended sculptures, made from wire and semi-transparent fabric, hover and sway. The child-animal-toy figures are the characters of our half-remembered childhood games, songs and stories.
She invited the choreographer and artist Felix Aarts to create a dance performance around the theme of memory. Shadows on the Mind will be performed by the dancer Sarah Rodak, on a score extracted from Mozart’s first opera, Bastien und Bastienne.
Constance was born in France and educated in the UK. She earned an MFA from the Pratt Institute last year. Her work has been widely exhibited in Europe.
The exhibition opens on Wednesday 1st July. Opening reception 6-8pm.
Closing reception and performances on Saturday 11th July, 6:30pm and 7:30pm.
Open Hours: July 2, 3, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12 from 1pm to 6pm
Please note we will be closed on July 4th and 6th.
