Parrish Road Show: Almond Zigmund
August 24, 2013–September 10, 2013
For Interruptions Repeated, artist Almond Zigmund installs two large-scale sculptural works in the parlor of the Sag Harbor Whaling & Historial Museum. Bisecting the room, Zigmund’s blockade-like structures provide a dramatic contrast to the ornate plaster ceiling and carved wooden doorframes of this Greek Revival home.
Almond Zigmund combines crisp geometry, vivid color, and intricate patterns in her architectonic drawings, sculptures, and installations. Suggesting walls, barricades, enclosures, and other aspects of the built environment, her works elicit spacial disorientation by fusing real and representational space. Originally from Brooklyn, Zigmund received a BFA from Parsons School of Design, and an MFA from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. She currently lives in Brooklyn and East Hampton.
A reception for the artist was held on Saturday, August 24, 6:30–8:30 pm.
