Redux Contemporary Art Center is excited to present Interwoven, a solo exhibition from Columbia based artist Jordan Sheridan. Sheridan works in textile installation and oil painting, and this exhibition will transform the Redux galleries with a new series of paintings along with a large, crocheted, and light-based installation titled,The Mother. Interwoven is the result of Sheridan imagining the maternal experience as an enveloping, polymorphous mass that is ever stretching, fracturing, and shifting.The work documents and aestheticizes her personal experience as a mother to her young children. Through painting and installation, she communicates the paradox of feeling both overwhelmed and spellbound as a mother, of reconnecting the fragmented pieces of her identity while the boundaries between herself and her children are often blurred.
Come join exhibiting artist Jordan Sheridan in a collaborative community workshop at Redux!
Sheridan will teach participants how to cut and crochet a single chain with donated fabric. Then working together, everyone will create chains of material and hang them on a wooden frame suspended from the ceiling in the gallery.
Participants are encouraged, but not required to bring old materials like; t-shirts, towels, sheets, etc with them to the event. Join in the fun with the Redux community to help create a dynamic piece of art that will be a part of Sheridan’s exhibition, “Interwoven”.
