Desiree Leary - 4 PUZZLES IN 1 BOX

Desiree Leary - 4 PUZZLES IN 1 BOX

Saturday 1/4 & Sunday 1/5 from 1 to 6pm

Please join us for 4 PUZZLES IN 1 BOX, an interactive performance by Desiree Leary to mark the closing of her solo show VISION TRAPS. The artist will be present at Sardine all weekend and she invites visitors to join her in assembling her work “4 Puzzles in 1 Box”, four separate puzzles of four of her photographs each containing common elements such as grass, cement, wood, cross, and square. Each puzzle is cut exactly the same giving the opportunity for the images to be remixed.

Desiree will also doing a drawing every hour to give away one of her posters from the show. The gallery will be open regular weekend hours: Sat. and Sun. from 1-6. You must be present to win!

The press release from VISION TRAPS:

Desiree photographs with only her phone and a point-and-shoot camera. With minimal techniques and a distinctive eye, she stretches the possibilities of the medium by using various low-tech, consumer-friendly platforms and hands-on presentations. While the images themselves are grounded in the tradition of snapshot photography, no image is too precious to be transformed into a dinner plate, printed onto canvas or turned into a paperweight.

Desiree Leary was born in Taiwan, raised in Pennsylvania now lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. She received a BFA from Alfred University, an MLIS from Rutgers University and will begin MFA studies at Hunter College in January. In 2012, she was awarded the Print Media Residency at the Institute for Electronic Arts in Alfred, NY. Her work has most recently been seen at TEMP, NY and Bushwick Open Studios.
