Jennifer Bornstein printed the gallery space. This doesn't mean metaphorically but literally and physically. Monotype prints were pulled from the floor, window, ceiling beams, heating vents, and cracks under the walls. To do this, the architectural elements in the room (doors, beams, etc.) were rolled with oil-based printing inks and images pulled from their surfaces. The footprint of the 30' x 40' gallery floor was jack-hammered with a line running north to south, then inked up like a printing plate and printed using oil-based ink.
This is Jennifer Bornstein's third show at GBE. Bornstein lives in New York and Berlin. She has had solo shows at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (2011) and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (2005). Her work is current on view in the 2014 Whitney Biennial.
