Elizabeth Riley: "Ribbons Become Space"

Please join us for the opening reception of Elizabeth Riley’s new solo exhibition “Ribbons Become Space” an exhibition of installation and structural wall works that explore our “mixed reality,” living between physical and digital/virtual contexts while addressing questions concerning the complex world we inhabit.


Elizabeth Riley’s work centers in the transformation of video from a moving image into a material form, which she then makes into sculpture and installation. The installation is a play between the physical video stills and space — creating sculpture, but also carving out or giving definition to space. Riley looks to the video media shapes and structures she creates, in order to form an embodiment of the present and the future, usually based in personal experiences surrounding social standards and environment. She is asking the viewer: “does the digital present the bells and whistles of an unchanged and familiar humanity, or does it define us and the future?”


“Ribbons Become Space” remains on view through August 9th. Contact info@sl.gallery or 212-967-5945 for any questions or additional information. This event is free and open to the public.
