Opening Reception–January 30th, 6pm-8pm
Press Release, 2016
The ArtLab Gallery will be showing a collaborative exhibition titled, “Automaton” by Christy O’Connor and Kate Eggleston. The two artists and educators met as undergraduates at Ramapo College of NJ. O’Connor’s gritty artistic vision embodies mixed media experimentation that leaves the viewer with a feeling of unease. Eggleston employs found objects, textiles, and homespun techniques to create work with a mix of whimsy and aggression. At the intersection of technology and feminism, “Automaton” is a manifestation of identity and gender degradation. The artists welcome the viewer into the automata’s inner sanctum, where they will be immersed in an amalgamated world of primitive automation.
