ALEXANDRA ZUCKERMAN

featuring TOMER ROSENTHAL


The Dreaming House


April 24 - May 24, 2015

Opening: Friday, April 24th, 7-10 p.m.


A Warning to the Curious*: Alexandra Zuckerman’s house, a redrawn Manderley** (possibly located on Moscow’s central street, Tverskaya, where a black cat is said to appear at midnight) is praetextum [ornament, texture] as much as locus [architectural mnemonic***].
For a better reading of the artist’s stylistic environment, look into notions like design, architecture, craft, storytelling, imagery, fantasy. Beware, they must have been, and were, in the notes, as well as in the words lines of his her wild fantasias (for he she not unfrequently accompanied himself herself with rhymed verbal visual improvisations), the result of that intense mental collectedness and concentration to which I have previously alluded as observable only in particular moments of the highest artificial excitement****.


* ghost story by M.R. James
** fictional estate of Maxim de Winter in Daphne du Maurier's 1938 novel, Rebecca
*** group of techniques - belonging to the art of memory - based on the use of places to record experience or knowledge
**** altered excerpt from “The Fall of the House of Usher”, by Edgar Allan Poe
