Parrish Road Show: Sydney Albertini
AND ALSO, I HAVE NO IDEA
August 10, 2013 to September 2, 2013
For And Also, I Have No Idea, artist Sydney Albertini creates a quasi-theater set of her soft sculptures and costumes at the site of the late painter John Little’s former home and studio. For this interactive work, visitors will be assisted in trying on the artist’s costumes and sculptural heads and then photographed against the backdrop of the site.
Parisian-born artist Sydney Albertini creates bold abstract motifs in a variety of media, from visual art to functional design. Educated at Parsons School of Design, New York, and Studio Art Center International, Florence, Albertini brings her dual cultural sensibility to projects that encompass drawing, painting, installation, wearable art, and performance. Albertini lives and works in East Hampton.
A reception for the artist was held Saturday, August 10, 6–8 pm.
