“CLIPPED” Installation Now at Le Salon D’Art

Posted on: July 5th, 2011 at 6:18 am by

The hair salon-cum-gallery Le Salon d’Art at 90 Stanton Street is gearing up for its next exhibition. Entitled “CLIPPED” (a play on words for sure), the month-long showcase promises to display “appropriated material from the streets of New York City.” A group of six local artists – Andrew Matsumoto, Michael Serafino, Jeremy Penn, Flip Skip, Ari Lankin and Borbay – is transforming found materials into a completely new context.

Here is the official industry babble description:

“CLIPPED” refers to the link these artists share using printed paper as their most common found material. These works embody and perpetuate our fractured reality by literally fracturing it even further. Materials, words, and images are clipped from their original context and reborn in new situations. The end result enables the viewer to slip into an infinite realm of the past, the present, and the future.

While the requisite launch party is not until July 14, the installation is still open for public viewing. “CLIPPED” will be on display until the end of July.
