La MaMa Galleria | 47 Great Jones Street

Gallery Hours: Thursday to Sunday 1 to 7PM, or by appointment

By Matthew Alie & James Powers

Join us Saturday, May 5th at 8:30PM for a performance by GRAMMY and Emilie Weibel. Grammy is an ensemble of acoustic instruments and electronic textures that floats between ambient minimal and pop music. Emilie Weibel is a haunting pop noise vocalist and member of the duo Clebs.
Matthew Alie and James Powers present work that drifts in the built landscape – the landscape rendered by humans. They dispense elements of fiction and reality, exactitude and ham-fisted approximation, spillage and containment. In Moby Duck, the almost humorous mishap of rubber ducks might be an apocryphal environment blight, but also the tidal coordinates for a fastidious crew of beachcombers and for the more fatalistic and abject – the sublime. The degree to which narrative shapes the manicured analytical framework of our lives provides ample room for Alie’s and Powers’ part-experimental, and part-painterly riposte.
“Are we to grow used to the idea that every man relives ancient torments, which are all the more profound because they grow comic with repetition? “
- Solaris,  Stanislaw Lem
