STOREFRONT , AESTHETICS/ANESTHETICS, NYC
An exhibition of 30 newly commissioned architectural drawings by 30 emerging and established architects and firms. Each commissioned drawing depicts the Storefront Gallery space at 97 Kenmare. The drawings reveal different aspects of the space and are representative of the generative properties of the architect's drawing. PRODUCTORA produced a black ballpoint on vellum drawing that depicts the gallery with certain twists in orientation, scale or perspective. By using these classical architectural tools a new phantasmagoric imagery of the building is created. Although using very simple and commercial materials (bic ballpoints), the drawing technique recreates a Piranesi-like engraving, as if the Storefront Gallery is re-discovered through the eyes of an ancient expedition team.
