Using the recent resurgence of craft as a springboard, Saira Mclaren and Fran Holstrom bring together eight New York City artists whose work references  “the body” and the elusive messages conveyed in gestures, while simultaneously challenging the meaning or common use attributed to their materials. ‪Presented in pairs, the works converse with one another, making signs, relaying messages and traces of a body once present and now gone. Unexpected material use and an informal DIY aesthetic are king.

Gallery hours are on Sunday from 1-6pm or by appointment. Please contact Mitchell Wright at 106green@gmail.com or 865-771-0666. The gallery is located at 104 Green @Franklin in the Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn.  For more information: http://106green.blogspot.com




The term kineme was first used (in 1952) by Ray Birdwhistell, an anthropologist who wished to study how people communicate through posture, gesture, stance, and movement, and later popularised during the late 1960s by members of the counter-culture seeking to de-verbalize human communicationWikipedia
