The Renaissance Society is very excited to present a solo exhibition, parrottree—building for bigger than real, by Berlin-based artist Nora Schultz on view January 12 through February 23, 2014. Schultz will produce all new works for this exhibition.
Schultz produces sculptural installations that double as analog printing studios. Her primary materials are discarded objects scavenged from around her studio and the site of exhibition, often in the form of metal bars and sheets, grates, tubes, plastics, etc. Schultz repurposes this refuse into sculptural objects, as well as contact printing devices, stencils and even simple rotary presses with which she prints (often as public performance) abstractions scaled from the intimate to the monumental, exhibited individually or in accumulating heaps. Deeply engaged with material and process, Schultz’s installations are themselves, at times, engines of ongoing artistic creation.
This is Schultz’s first solo museum exhibition in the United States, as well as the first show curated at the Renaissance Society by new Chief Curator and Executive Director, Solveig Øvstebø.
