This event has ended.

Smack Mellon presents three solo exhibitions of Tracey Goodman, Alison Owen, and Selin Balci.

Alison Owen, Species of Spaces:
Using Smack Mellon as a type of archive for her installation, Species of Spaces, Alison Owen presents a taxonomy of objects which she has gathered from artists that have previously participated at Smack Mellon. Basing her installation on the opposite facing windows, Owens recreates the pattern of the window frames as shelves holding up the various collected items. A hand-drawn inventory book and installation notes outline the overlaps in materials and methods.

Tracey Goodman, The small thread of days and sunlight:
Disrupting the familiarity of the industrial architecture, Tracey Goodman poetically reimagines the gallery space filled with reconstructed dresses, window coverings, taxidermy birds, and Venetian plaster as sunlight on the floor; each element hand made. In The small thread of days and sunlight, a title borrowed from Shirley Jackson’s tale A Visit, Goodman blurs the border between public and domestic, seen and unseen.

Selin Balci, Bordered World:
In Selin Balci’s bio-art installation Bordered World, 2,000 Petri dishes compose a three-dimensional kaleidoscopic world map representing the universal struggle for survival and dominance. Within each hand “painted” Petri dish, live molds and fungi are in an observable battle for limited resources. Distinctive borders slowly form and new colonies develop during this microscopic feud.
