When You Cut into the Present the Future Leaks Out
For this exhibition, Deborah Fisher and Paul Ramírez Jonas work as a collaborative team. The two artists, who have each produced participatory work in public spaces, combine their interests toward a work for the Old Bronx Borough Courthouse about service, art, and alchemy. A custom-designed neon sign signals the possibility of fortune telling, notary service, gold exchange, and coffee, all in a single action/interaction. The artists will activate the shop three times over the course of the exhibition, resulting in a personalized “hand-made” artwork created intimately with each participant.
The shop will be open on the following days from 1-6pm:
- Saturday, May 9
- Saturday, May 30
- Saturday, June 27
