Juror’s Statement: March 3, 2017

Sir Alec Issigonis is said to have defined a camel as a horse, designed by committee. Exhibition curators assemble bodies of work, while juried shows are selected from bodies of work the juror did not assemble. The challenge then is to find some kind of hypothetical logic that would allow the juror to create a selection that might have been curated.

In today’s world, polemics of style or taxonomies of media have passed their sell-by date. In the digital age, objects created to engage the viewer and stimulate a response find sudden unity in sharing the distinction of physicality. The question becomes not just one of craft, or even of originality, but how thoughtfully the artwork manifests a sense of purpose, generates an encounter, and delivers an experience. My selection focused on works engaged less in exposition, and more in exploring processes associated with close scrutiny, travel, gender, identity, crisis, sexuality,and mass-media. It was a pleasure to spend time with all of the entries, and equally difficult to narrow the selection from fifty to fifteen—the limit set for accepted entries. My hope is these selections will benefit from their dialogue.

“Dark Ouroboros” by Allison Kotzig

 

 

Allison Kotzig’s current work is focused on concepts of impermanence, myth, feminine power, fertility, cyclicality and infinity. A large part of her practice involves artistic deconstruction of social justice. Bones and found objects, both natural and human-made are used, along with video, paint, hide, and board. Her video work explores dream and trance states brought about by light reflection and movement as they relate to identity, transformation, mystery and transcendental experience.

 

Allison Kotzig inside Installation Art Piece

 

 

 

She is an installation, video and mixed media artist who works and shows internationally. Her work is rooted in the mysteries of the forest, dream states, social protest and womanism.  After leaving school and striking out on her own to explore the world as a young punk rock feminist at age 15, Allison Kotzig lived in her car in a protracted journey across the United States. After returning to school, studying Neuropsychology and getting a Masters Degree in Medieval History from Dublin’s Trinity College, she now splits her time between Miami and Slovakia.

 

 

Ouroboros nest egg” by Allison Kotzig

 

 

In Slovakia, she helps run an Inn and organic slow food restaurant which is focused on growing their own vegetables and keeping bees. She is a co-founder of the Slovak-based cook4refugee, a volunteer organization that cooks and delivers food to refugees on the move and in transit camps, and of the Miami-based collective Artists For Black Lives Matter.

Internationally, she’s had a solo shows organized by the Embassy of Ireland in Bratislava as well as with Beddington Gallery in France.

Her video work has been screened in Spain, Bangkok, Venice, Rome, Naples, France, as well as in many locations within the United States

ABOUT ART SALONS:

 

Our discussions cover the gamut of contemporary art themes, including conceptual, cultural, socio/political, environmental, race and gender focused and aesthetic practices, the materials and techniques used to convey these ideas, and where we fit into the world of contemporary conceptual art. Art Salons also offer the opportunity to explore the practical side of being an artist, enhance professional development, share useful resources, and network with other artists. Elle Schorr, a well known artist / photographer who spends much of her time at museums and art exhibits locally and internationally, has been facilitating the salons, hosted by the Armory Art Center, since 2012. All are welcome to join in these timely explorations of trends in contemporary art and individual artists’ work.

Kinetic – Intentions by Elayna Toby Singer

 

 

 

 

 

High school students at Boynton Beach Community High School create mini-mobile kinetic art project

 

 

 

 The students created the mobiles in visual art instructor Ms. Gwenn Seuling’s class. The mobiles, along with participant’s written intentions, will cover four downtown trees to create a curtained outdoor “room” with positive messages that will blow in the wind. The project gave high school students enrolled in visual arts, earth science and computer classes an opportunity to participate in a community project and to learn about kinetic art. 

 

 

Award-Winning Artist Elayna Toby Singer

Unveils Kinetic Art “Room”

Suspended Among Trees

February 4-5

 

Public invited to be part of interactive temporary tree art installation “Kinetic Intentions” 

 

 


“Kinetic Intentions” is commissioned by the City of Boynton Beach Art in Public Places. Visit www.elaynatobyart.com/kineticintentions for more info about this community creation. For more info about the International Kinetic Art Festival please visit www.intlkineticartevent.org.

 

Elayna Toby Singer

 

The temporary site specific art installation Kinetic Intentions is the brainchild of Elayna Toby Singer, last year’s International Kinetic Art “People’s Choice” winner. Over two days, February 4-5, Kinetic Intentions will “come to life” in the park just east of Boynton’s Civic Center, as thousands of festival attendees create and attach Intention Ribbons, and mini-Mahogany mobiles (or select from hundreds on display from community workshops) to recycled washers on the 150 six-foot kinetic strands.  Visitors to the International Kinetic Art Exhibit and Symposium will be drawn to walk in and around the magical outdoor “room” made of twirling strands adorned with mirrors, bells, found washers, community created mini-mahogany mobiles and intention ribbons; all which animate the wind.

 

 

 

Kinetic Intentions Workshop

 

 

“Kinetic Intentions is a community ‘moving meditation’ for manifesting personal and environmental balance,” says Singer. “With every breath, positive thought (intention) and movement we are ‘mobilized’ to take better care of ourselves and the environment which sustains us.”   Central to this environmental community art project are thousands of Florida Native Mahogany seed pods Singer collected locally from shade trees along neighborhood streets and parking lots throughout Palm Beach County.

 

 

Kinetic Intentions Workshop

 

 

Singer chose the Mahogany seed pod specifically due to its threatened status in its native habitat from over harvesting for furniture. She sees the recycled pods as a symbol of the delicate balance between us and our environment. The challenge of sustaining balance becomes tangible as the public uses the recycled Mahogany pods to create a balanced mobile.

ABOUT KINETIC INTENTIONS:

 


Following the success of the February 2015 Kinetic-Connections, which won the People’s Choice Award for the transformation of an historic kapok tree into living kinetic art, artist Elayna Toby Singer created Kinetic Intentions. The multi-phase community project included six county-wide, free workshops that explored “the Art, Science & Soul of Making Mobiles” under the direction of Singer. Each mini-mobile is constructed using fishing line and recycled seed pods from Florida’s Mahogany trees which are threatened to extinction in the wild. Participants experienced the centering, meditative process of mobile making while pondering their intentions for personal and environmental balance. Those intentions were written onto cloth ribbons which will be affixed, along with the mobiles to an outdoor, kinetic “room” during the International Kinetic Art Exhibit and Symposium February 2017. Ms. Singer creates the outdoor, kinetic “room” with 150 six-foot long twirling strands adorned with mirrors, bells, found washers, community created mini-mahogany mobiles and intention ribbons suspended among four trees in Boynton Beach, FL during the International Kinetic Art Exhibit and Symposium. Attendees to the Kinetic Art Exhibit and Symposium are invited to create their own mini-mobile and intention ribbon, or to select ones from the workshops and add them to each strand, bringing the tree art installation to “life.” Kinetic Intentions is commissioned by Boynton Beach Art in Public Places.

 

 

 

ABOUT THE ART OF ELAYNA TOBY SINGER:

Elayna Toby Singer has been creating kinetic art sculpture and jewelry since the mid 1990’s and incorporating “found objects” since 2003. Locally, her commissioned works and exhibitions have been shown in Palm Beach and Broward Counties for more than six years. In 2015 her temporary site specific community creation “Kinetic-Connections” received the People’s Choice Award for magically transforming an historic Kapok tree into a kinetic sculpture with upcycled objects from the community. In 2009, Elayna Toby was invited by Habla: The Center for Language and Culture in Merida Mexico, to lead her first “Natural Mobiles” workshop. With a BS in Cultural Anthropology and an MS in Public Horticulture and Museum Management, Ms. Singer’s career in creative place-making began in the early 1990’s when she spent fifteen years in some of the nation’s leading public gardens and arboreta creating experiences that engaged the public in the art, science and heritage of plants and the essential role they play in our lives.
