Florence Lynch Gallery is pleased to announce an installation by Janet Echelman. Target swooping down...Bullseye!, a 20,000 square foot hand-knotted lace sculpture will be on view from December 5 through January 12, 2002. An opening reception will be held at the gallery on Wednesday, December 5, from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m.

Originally made for the International Trade Fair Complex (IFEMA) in Madrid, Spain, the sculpture was viewed by more than 180,000 visitors during ARCO. In a second installation in Spain, the sculpture was altered for the headquarters of the Caja de Burgos in the Casa del Cordón, a 15th-century stone courtyard where Christopher Columbus was welcomed home from the New World by Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand. The piece was enjoyed by the bank's clients and visitors from June through August, 2001. Target will have its first US viewing when it opens at the gallery on December 5.

The initial reference for Target swooping down...was Jasper Johns' target paintings and his physicalization of visual symbols in painting. In Echelman's versions, the target symbol not only breaks the boundary of illusion to become physical, but it leaves the picture plane and moves through space, interacting with the very air and space that we occupy. In its New York debut, Target swooping down... breaks down a new barrier: the structure of the gallery itself. Beginning in the gallery as a physical wall and floor drawing, the piece escapes the building and begins to interact with urban airspace, that cacophony that is New York City.

A native of Florida, Echelman lives and works in New York City. She has presented numerous installations and exhibitions in the U.S. and overseas, among them at the Arthur M. Sackler Museum and Fogg Art Museum of Harvard University, the Tampa Museum of Art in Florida, The Fields Sculpture Museum in Omi, New York, the University of Connecticut's Atrium Gallery, the Fung Ping Shan Museum of Hong Kong University, the Harvard University Graduate School of Design Currents Gallery, and a solo-exhibition curated by Robert Rauschenberg.

This sculpture was made possible by grants from the American Institute of Indian Studies and the G.V. Memorial Trust Foundation for Art and Culture.



Catalogue available at Florence Lynch Gallery, NY, with essays by Denise Carvalho and Joan Lebold Cohen.
