Dual Zone is a place that lies in-between, an investigation into works that derive from painting but have characteristics of sculpture.
The artists in Dual Zone are stretching, pulling, folding, angling and constructing with varied materials, works that exist in that twofold state.
Steve Karlik creates opposing forces that work harmoniously in his “tension and compression” series. Debra Ramsay methodically maps a space using repeating lines and folds that intersect and recede. Karen Schifano’s constructions are playful commentaries on geometric abstraction.
I’m pleased to be included in this exhibition and program in Berlin.
800 international drawings
curated by Anke Becker
exhibition: March 24 – April 20, 2013
opening reception: Saturday 23 / 7 pm
Kunstverein Tiergarten | Galerie Nord
Turmstraße 75 / 10551 Berlin
opening hours: Sun March 24: noon-6 pm
afterwards: Tue – Sat, 1-7 pm
What is the line between what is and is not art? What is a good drawing? How does one’s own assessment change if there is no information at all about the artist? With Anonymous Drawings the common rules of the art-market are reversed in an experimental way turned upside down. Anonymous Drawings was founded 2006 by the artist Anke Becker in Berlin, Germany. Since then, more than 8000 artists from all over the world have taken part in the project and more than ten shows of Anonymous Drawings took place in Berlin and abroad up until today.
The exhibition was preceded by an open call for participation on the internet. 800 works have been selected for the exhibition. The age, biography or gender of the participants did not play any role in the selection: the selection has been made anonymously, without looking at the artists’ names. The only formal rule: the maximum size of the exhibited drawings is 30 by 42 cm (A3). The artist’s anonymity can only be revealed by a sale: All exhibited drawings are available for a symbolic unit sales-price of 150 Euros each.
With Anonymous Drawing many single pieces of art become one “Gesamtkunstwerk”: Each and every anonymous artist becomes part of a huge installation where hierarchies do not exist. Anonymous Drawings is an action against separation, competition and monoculture within the art-market and a tribute to the inexhaustible medium of drawing.
Sale of drawings for a unit sales price of 150 Euro each at the gallery and online (from March 24 – April 20): www.anonyme-zeichner.de
A catalog is published along with the exhibition: color print, 102 pages, German/English, 19,50€ - with an essay by Daniela Droescher.

Just as the video I’ve placed here is a fragment, so will be my following impressions of the massive, complex, multilayered installation that is the event of a thread, Ann Hamilton’s response to the city block large Drill Hall at the Park Avenue Armory. The installation is both of gigantic proportion (the fabric curtain that gets its movement from the attached swings) and personally sized…newspapers documenting the thinking and making of the work, packages that contain radios enabling you to hear the words of the readers at one end of the space…
Then there’s the people interacting with the piece, giving it life. We form a swarming unpredictable necessary element, dwarfed by the space, our interactions with the work teach and entertain us and give a performance for the others. Viewer and viewed.
If you can, see if for yourself. Up through January 6th. 643 Park Avenue@ 67th St.
Joanne Mattera has done a wonderful job reviewing the exhibition, Making Room, that includes my work at the Institute Library in New Haven, CT. The exhibition was curated by Suzan Shutan and is up through this Saturday, 11/3.
Read the full review here:
and the excerpt where she discusses my contribution to the exhibition:
“Continuing our view of that wall, we come to a grid of nine Tyvek rectangles by Debra Ramsay. Ramsay’s work is as conceptual as it is material. Here she has cut a square out of the rectangle, and a rectangle out of the cut square. The integrity of the nine larger rectangles is altered, but it is not violated. Indeed, in the way Ramsay has allowed positive to arise from negative, and vice versa, the whole is equal to more than the sum of its parts.”

Sports have never found their way into my heart, but when telling a friend recently that I had two shows opening on the same day…she used this term*. Sports terminology aside…here are the details, I hope you might be able to join me at one, the other…or both:
Ten contemporary artists integrate their work into a 186 year-old space, emphasizing historic integrity while exploring new connections. The artwork exists between two and three dimensions, is site-specific and responds to the issues of material ingenuity, color, architecture and reductivist aesthetics.
