Site-Specific Exhibition

in The Church of St. Paul the Apostle

Curated by Michael Berube

    

New York artist Judy Moonelis has created new artwork for the Church of Saint Paul the Apostle. She is exhibiting a site-specific installation in the Chapel of Saint Agnes. The artist creates both gallery-based and site-specific works for secular, civic and sacred spaces. 

 

The narrative of Saint Agnes involves a woman and the power of transformation. Agnes is protected when attacked by instantaneously growing an abundance of hair to cover her body. The lamb and fire are symbols of Agnes included here. The twisting spire structures in this installation make specific reference to the chapel and themes of change and connection. The spire sculptures appear to twist like the helices in our own DNA and that of all living organisms. 

 

Judy Moonelis exhibition has been made possible in part by support from Fairleigh Dickinson University, Florham Campus.

 

The exhibition runs: April 9 - May 31, 2016

Opening Reception: Thursday April 14th, 2016.  7:00-9:00pm

Artists' Talk: Thursday May 19th, 2016. 7:00-9:00pm

“There is a compelling oblique narrative suggested by Mongrain’s sculptures that also reflects an autobiographical politic. Scientific findings and religious philosophy are the conceptual foundation of his emotive forms.”  David Revere McFadden, Chief Curator of The Museum of Art and Design, NYC.

 

New York artist Jeffrey Mongrain will exhibit newly created site-specific artworks for three Chapels at The Church of Saint Paul the Apostle in New York City. The exhibition will run from April 9th to May 31, 2016. He will be installing works in the Chapels of Saint Patrick, Saint Theresa of the Little Flowers, and The Annunciation Chapel. Jeffrey Mongrain creates both gallery-based works and site-specific pieces. The sited works are primarily located in Gothic oriented architectural spaces. His gallery-based sculptures are reductive and generally reference architectural forms.

 

The exhibition runs: April 9 - May 31, 2016
