Opening Reception on Wed, Feb 9, 2011

The FIAF Gallery presents a special site-specific installation by Sydney Albertini, a young French-American artist currently living in New York.

This exhibition is the second half of Albertini’s two-part series, éphémère. The first part, shown in New York in December 2010, presented large-scale drawings that will be brought to life in this more immersive and participatory second installation.

Albertini’s works, compelling in their graphic quality and magnetic abstraction, capture the intimate moments of our quotidian routines. Invoking movement, color, and textiles, her drawings evoke not only fashion, but the essence of human movement and the nature of color, and strive to highlight the beauty of the ephemeral in our daily lives.
