All That Is Seen And Unseen, a solo art exhibition by Amelia Marzec at Flux Factory on Governors Island, presents a collection of objects on the topic of a “queer technological Eastern European diaspora.”
The installation includes: shrines that broadcast coming out stories over Family Radio Service; a typeface inspired by an AI’s opinion of early Slavic writing systems; a sculpture that listens for military aircraft through a radio hidden in a folk art ceiling decoration; and digital photographs that depict the body in ritual garments from Pagan marriage and Catholic priesthood. Software with imagery based on traditional papercuts, depicting women’s bodies, weapons, and pre-Christian symbols, will be shown. It will also be projected on church buildings and institutional architecture during the run of the show, in conjunction with the Island Luminaria exhibition.
Additionally, a virtual reality piece featuring a walking simulator filled with impotent paper doll tanks will be presented at Harvestworks in Nolan Park.
Flux Factory is one of the 2023 Governors Island Arts Organizations in Residence
