O ZHANG: I AM YOUR MIRROR
NEW YORK, NY (Wednesday, September 26, 2012) The Vilcek Foundation’s latest gallery installation is the solo work of Chinese born artist O Zhang, entitled I Am Your Mirror. It features photographs of blank billboards captured during her cross-country voyages throughout the United States. The photo’s illustrate of the emptiness and decay of a recession-ridden country once proliferated with bountiful images of the American dream.
The gallery walls as well as its floors are lined with O Zhang’s works, featuring weathered prints left out in the elements. In the center of the gallery, O Zhang has constructed a billboard of her own with a multi-layered papered image of one of her works.
The installation will be on view until November 10, 2012. An artists talk has been scheduled for October 13th at the gallery from 3pm to 4pm. It is free and open to the public, but an RSVP is advised. See the Vilcek website for details.
