Opening Reception: Friday, October 3, 2014 / 7-10pm

Exhibition Dates: October 3 – October 29, 2014

 

Space 1026 is pleased to announce our upcoming exhibition, Please Pardon Our  Appearance, by Jacob Lunderby. This exhibition opens Friday, Oct. 3, 2014 with a reception from 7-10 pm.  For this exhibition, Lunderby depicts images of windows that have been digitally modified and layered over enamel paint on wood panel. While the production of work includes the use of digital resources and printing, the artist’s objective is to see the work in a context of painting.

The paintings of windows originate from one of two gestures: blocking out to prevent observation into an interior space, or covering a break to arrest fracturing of the window surface.   As with the vernacular of painting, the images of windows shift between presentation of depth, surface tension and reflectiveness. The marginal materials used as devices to control vision and the sense of precarious formalism found in this meshwork of image and pattern provides a generative model to engage layers of attention, materiality and durations of time, from the context of a restaged image to the life span of a painting.

Through the process of using images that gesture towards methods of concealment, containment and protection, Lunderby uses painting to engage the potential to contain, disrupt or direct vision, and address the image/painting object in its complex relationship to time and context.

Jacob Lunderby is an artist, educator and preparator based in Philadelphia, PA. His recent exhibitions include: Redactor, Pentimenti Gallery, Philadelphia, PA (solo); Cephalopod Interface, Okinawa Prefectural Art Museum, Naha City, Okinawa; Confiscape, Circa Gallery, Minneapolis, MN; The Implication, Emory and Henry College, Emory, VA (solo); Painting Zombies, Regis Center for the Arts, Minneapolis, MN; Heaven on Earth, Little Berlin, Philadelphia, PA; Minnesota Museum of American Art, St. Paul, MN; and more. He received an MFA from the University of Minnesota (2002) and BFA from the Minneapolis College of Art & Design (1998). Lunderby is represented by Pentimenti Gallery, Philadelphia. All work appearing in this exhibition comes courtesy of Pentimenti Gallery.

RURAL ROUTE FILM FEST – 4/20


The Rural Route Film Festival was created to highlight works that deal with rural people and places. This will be Rural Route’s first screening in Philly.

We have an all-new killer ‘best of/shorts’ tour program, and it includes some of our favorite narrative films ever, like the whimsical, inverted French fairytale, “Sacha the Bear”, the well-stated, South Dakota shocker,“A Short Film About Ice Fishing”, the N. Wales sci-fi thriller, “The Water’s Edge”, the story of a closeted drag queen/Mexican farm boy, “Un Buen Hijo”, and two amazing films from Australia – “The Hunter” (a sand animated timeless folk tale) and “Crosshairs” (a textbook perfect drama about 2 poaching brothers). And on top of that, the program includes 2 films from famed ethnographer, Robert Gardner, a documentary about a painter and his Montana ranch subject, a macro experimental film on the bugs of Golden Gate Botanical Garden, and an archival/found piece about the best street cleaner and self-taught guitarist from Norton, Virginia!

Doors at 7
Screening from 7:30 until 10 pm
Admission ~ $5 donation
