Raylene Gorum "Camero(o)n’s Line"

The LAB Gallery

poster for Raylene Gorum "Camero(o)n’s Line"

This event has ended.

"Camero(o)n’s Line" is inspired by a dramatic geological event that occurred 440 million years ago yet profoundly influences modern NYC. Cameron’s Line fault runs along the east side of Manhattan and denotes the platetectonic edge of the ancient continent and the softer newer soils of Brooklyn/Queens. The gallery will become an expression of this dynamic geology with pleated planes of reflected mylar folding and twisting away from the ceiling, walls and floor. These undulating planes use man-made lightweight material to invoke solid pre-historic geological gestures. The large scale origami appears to be a crystalline-like structure caught in a moment of tumult.

Raylene Gorum earned a Bachelors of Architecture from Cal Poly SLO and Ecole d’Architecture Paris, and studied printmaking at Central St. Martin’s, London. Her books and flatwork have been exhibited in New York, San Francisco, Chicago, London, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Taipei, and Brazil. Her recent work has grown to large scale, site specific installations. The largest of these covered 165′ x 16′ of window across the street from MoMA in conjunction with Chashama. These installations aim to blur the boundaries between nature/artifice, art/architecture, indoor/outdoor, and sometimes between 2D and 3D.
