In her autobiographical, site-specific installation at AC [Direct] II, Spanish artist Laura F. Gibellini explores the relationships between public and private environments. Incorporating line drawings and photographic digital prints, Gibellini builds a spatial narrative directly into the gallery through a recreation of a part of her apartment in New York City.
Investigating the elasticity and transience of lived spaces, “341 West 24th Street, New York” translates a trompe l'oeil fragment of time and place during her temporary stay in Manhattan. Gibellini delves into places that mirror our memories and negotiate our past and future. Her work is a complex visual topoanaylsis—one that permeates the psychological and emotional boundaries of the interior and exterior worlds we construct around us.
