Katherine Behar E-Waste Opening April 3, 2015
7:00PM - 11:00PM
Price:  Free

Eyedrum Art and Music Gallery presents Katherine Behar: E-Waste, an exhibition of new work by Brooklyn-based interdisciplinary artist Katherine Behar.

Behar’s installation centers on a new series of sculptures inspired by a science fiction scenario in which commonplace USB peripherals are doomed to continue working, long after the humans they were designed to serve have gone extinct. The gadgets are transformed into mutant fossils, encased in stone with lights blinking, speakers chirping, and fans spinning, eternally. The exhibition also includes a video series, Modeling Big Data – in which the artist inhabits an obese, over-grown data body, to humorous and poignant effect, and a 3D printer installation, 3D-&& – in which a fossilized printer slowly produces “scarab” covers for a network of glowing USB mouses, while its motors chirp out messages in Morse Code.

Responding to digital culture’s intense escalation of productivity, Behar’s work wavers between poetry and parody. Eliciting sympathy for the devices we exploit, she suggests that we ourselves are becoming increasingly device-like. We are ensnared in compulsory productivity, whether “working” in the traditional sense for our own gain, or generating value for distant corporations each time we click “like.” Combining machine-made, handmade, and organic forms, E-Waste offers a physical parallel to the excesses of big data, highlighting the counterpart surplus of consumer media artifacts, and drawing attention to its environmental impact.

A catalogue with contributions by Anna Watkins Fisher and curator Dima Strakovsky accompanies the exhibition. Katherine Behar: E-Waste is co-produced by the University of Kentucky College of Fine Arts and College of Arts and Sciences, and is supported in part by a PSC-CUNY Award, jointly funded by The Professional Staff Congress and The City University of New York. The exhibition was presented at the University of Kentucky’s Tuska Center for Contemporary Art in November, 2014.

On April 2 Behar will deliver a lecture at Georgia Tech as part of the GVU Brown Bag Speaker Series.

BIO
Qiu Zhijie (邱志杰; born 1969) is a contemporary Chinese artist who works primarily in video and photography. Overall, Qiu's work suggests the struggle between the forces of destiny and self-assertion. Other common themes are social fragmentation and transience.[1]
Qiu was born in 1969 in Fujian province. In 1992, he graduated from the printmaking department at Zhejiang Academy of Fine Arts, Hangzhou.[2] He now lives and works in Beijing.
The artist's break-through exhibition was in 1992 with China's New Art, Post-1989 at the Hanart Gallery and Hong Kong Arts Centre. By 1999, his work began receiving overseas interest with his inclusion in Revolutionary Capitals: Beijing-London at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London. In 2007 he had his first solo exhibition in the United States at the New York gallery Chambers Fine Art.
In 2005, his work was exhibited in the Victoria and Albert Museum's Between Past And Future: New Photography And Video From China, including Tattoo 1, which explores Qiu's assertion that in our media-saturated age, "signs and codes have overpowered actual human beings, and our bodies have become merely their vehicles." The character bu — meaning "no" — is written across the artist's body and on the wall behind him, creating the illusion that it floats free of the body.
