TYPOLOGY is pleased to present FLIGHTS & LANDINGS, a two-part exhibition of work by three multidisciplinary artists from three different cities: Brooklyn-based Tamara Gayer, Berlin-based Christine Gedeon, and Toronto-based Janine Miedzik. Known for their visually engaging, site-responsive approaches to installation, each artist will debut a large-scale project in one of the stairwell galleries at Artscape Youngplace (the Flights), complemented by a selection of smaller artworks representing object-oriented aspects of their practices in the project space (the Landings).
Each artist draws upon sources unique to her individual history and experiences, yet they all share a lifelong fascination with cities and the built environment, symbolic representations of both in maps and signs, and the commercial methods and materials used in related trades. Translating physical and mental states of transition into the idiosyncratic lines, patterns, and planes of pure colour which make up their striking and immersive artworks, Gayer, Gedeon and Miedzik invite viewers to become fellow travelers through the playful and expansive mind-spaces of their respective imaginations.
