The Watermill Brooklyn Gallery, located in DUMBO, is pleased to announce an exhibition of new work by Berlin-based artist Ralf Ziervogel. A fall 2008 artist-in-residence at the Watermill Center, Ziervogel presents a multi-media installation entitled Mawhistla (2009) that attempts to de-re-construct the clichés of viewing.
Taking James McNeill Whistler's "Arrangement in Grey and Black" (also known as "Whistler's Mother") as a collective image as if filtered through Switzerland's physics laboratory CERN Institute, Ziervogel transforms his own "particle accelerator" into a vision of the ghost of Whistler's mother, sitting in the chair.
Watermill Brooklyn Gallery is an exhibition space in the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn which brings the events and projects developed at the Watermill Center on Eastern Long Island to a larger audience in New York City. The gallery promotes Watermill's artists-in-residence, the vast and electic Watermill Collection, as well as other events and collaborators at Watermill.
