    Dylan Bailey at 55 GANSEVOORT

    DYLAN BAILEY : Emptiness

    Through March 7, 2014

    "I yawn, I fidget, I smoke too much. Up till this I always had too little time. Now there is nothing but time. Almost pure time, empty successiveness.”
    - C.S. Lewis, A Grief Observed

    No eye, ear, nose, tongue, body, mind;
    No color, sound, smell, taste, touch, thing
    No realm of sight, no realm of consciousness
    No ignorance, no end to ignorance
    No old age and death, no cessation of old age and death

    Gate gate paragate parasamgate bodhi svaha: gone, gone, gone beyond, gone completely beyond.
    -Heart Sūtra (Prajñāpāramitā Hṛdaya)


    55 GANSEVOORT is pleased to announce the opening of Dylan Bailey: Emptiness, on view from January 21st through March 7th at the gallery’s storefront location.

    Dylan Bailey: Emptiness presents the artist’s newest body of sculptural work.

    The several hundred pound sculpture is 12 feet tall and hangs suspended from the ceiling by an electric rotator, spinning continuously at a half turn per minute.

    The piece itself is dense; a cluster made up of empty bottles and appropriated wine racks.

    The wine racks are abstractions of a grape vine, with the prominent characteristics of a logarithmic spiral.

    They are steel, chromed, powder coated and faux finished, in hues of wrought iron, copper and bronze.

    These modular pieces are then strung together, balanced and looped onto the next, continuously. Nothing is welded or tied off.

    The conjoined racks are filled with empty wine bottles, accented by the odd mineral water and liquor bottle.

    Dylan Bailey’s paintings, sculpture and installations are direct reflections of material and process. He employs objects – brass numbers that adorn the outside of a house, the caps of spray paint bottles and, now, domestic wine racks. Bailey’s various mediums are consistently overlapping as he develops new functions for his materials and their detritus.

    The exhibitions at 55 Gansevoort are entirely visible, at all hours, by peering through the windowed doors.

    Dylan Bailey (born 1985, Londonberry, Vermont) earned a BA from the Rhode Island School of Design. His work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at David Nolan Gallery and The National Exemplar in New York.

    Steve DiBenedetto on Mary Halvorson

    Steve Di Benedetto writes about Mary Halvorson in BOMB Magazine:
    “I had never heard of Mary Halvorson when, listening to the radio one day in my studio, her guitar-playing first announced itself to me. I was immediately struck by a sound that was raw and inventive in a way that bypassed all expectations of how “jazz” guitar should be played. There was a component of friction involved, almost as if the “song” were at odds with being played. Not sure if this was someone from an exploratory rock type background, or an accomplished jazz guitarist utterly determined to avoid playing in an accepted idiom, I was totally engaged. This was the sort of jagged, unsettled, fearless, hybrid sound I look forward to hearing in any music.”
