Jessica Vaughn (MFA '11) 2013 ISP Studio Exhibition, {TEMP} Gallery, New York, New York

Jessica Vaughn, Bundled Distribution. 81 images on vinyl, 2013
Jessica Vaughn will participate in the group exhibition for the 2012-13 Whitney Independent Studio Program.  Her latest project encompasses over 100 found images from the Internet, street corners in New York City, choreographed photographs taken in the studio, text and sculpture. 
 Over 50, 5”x7” images printed on vinyl will be exhibited for this installation.  Taking the format of a grid these postcard size images will sit alongside text documented during walks in New York City where she recorded sounds of vendors selling goods.  A sculpture wrapped in stretch plastic wrap will exist in proximity to this grid.  These images and text bring together the intimacies found in street hawkers who repurpose king size bed sheets into an object for selling and carrying faux luxury goods and cosmetics.  Found images of these street corners and vendors with their bundles next to constructed studio photographs (of plastic wrapped goods) are positioned together to reimagine competing histories of literal intimacy and a culture of resistance to normative forms of distribution in urban centers. 

ON VIEW: May 31st-June 16th  {TEMP} Art Space 57 Walker Street (between Broadway & Church) OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, May 31, 5-8pm
