The Shredded Poetics of “Foot/Knots” Exhibit at 164 Orchard
Beneath the budget taco shack, there is art. Translation – a new subterranean gallery just opened below Snack Dragon at 164 Orchard Street. Envelope Project Space is now operational, and onto its inaugural group exhibition called “Foot|Knots,” which is produced by Joseph A. W. Quintela.
In the creative art-babble behind the project, “Foot|Knots” is presented as a “sculptural poetics installation” that will feature a month of events inside a cellar decked out with shredded literature. Head to the back of the room to see walls and sculptures of torn paper sourced from all sorts of publications. It essentially explores the role of physical books in a digital world, so destroying the written word in such a way certainly makes sense.
Last night was the opening reception of “Foot|Knots,” which featured Sarah McSherry donning a book dress. If this piques your fancy, here’s the rest of the schedule:
October 16 – Deadly Chaps/Patasola Poetry Reading (7 – 9 pm)
October 30 – Literary Halloween Party (9 pm – 1 am)
November 13 – Closing Reception featuring Sarah McSherry (6 – 9 pm)
