Bill Jenkins’ Image/Conduit Now on View at Studio + Gallery
Compelled by alternative functions, artist Bill Jenkins’ practice reconstitutes utilitarian objects and places. In the exhibition Image/Conduit, currently on view at the Freshkills Park Studio + Gallery, he investigates this curiosity through the topography of Freshkills Park.
The exhibition features video work titled Scans, investigating the relationship between decades of compressed garbage placed at Fresh Kills with the picturesque grassy hills that compose the landscape of Freshkills Park. The video installation is paired with sculptures from Jenkins’ Conduit series, which interrogate and deconstruct the systems that regulate the interaction between outdoor and indoor environments.
