Catalina Ouyang's Solo Show
Main Gallery @ 400 3rd Ave, Brooklyn NY 11215
May 20th - June 17th

Opening Reception May 20th: 7-9pm

In the Chinese folktale Legend of the White Snake, two serpent-goddess-demon best friends see their friendship threatened when the White Snake falls in love with a hapless human man and, to Green Snake’s dismay, decides to surrender her immortality in order to be with him. Trestle Projects is pleased to present sister, destroyer, lover, a solo show by Catalina Ouyang that weaves Legend of The White Snake and joint-creative practices into a singular space to explore
the capacity of friendship to queer heteropatriarchal narratives.


 

Deric Carner's Touch Railing
Stairwell II @ 400 3rd Ave, Brooklyn NY 11215
May 20th - June 17th

Opening Reception May 20th: 7-9pm

In The Back Stairwell, a project space in an unused stairwell, artist Deric Carner will present a site specific intervention aimed at producing non-optical connections within the viewer through touch. Created over several weeks of shaping, sanding and polishing, Touch Railing brings the sensuality of sculpture to the forefront by inviting viewers to caress and explore the varying textures of the object. The actuality and mindfulness required to experience this work is a counter to the increasing virtualization of life that ultimately alienates the body from its environment.
