Art Gym Denver is proud to present Deborah Jang and Mark Friday in their largest collaboration to date–an original assemblage that will fill the entire gallery space. Presented as part of Denver Arts Week, the installation piece includes interactive elements that will remain a mystery until the opening.
Jang and Friday are partners in life, and both have been working in assemblage for well over twenty years. They each have their own studio and unique methods, and began collaborating occasionally about ten years ago.
Their studios are mysterious places where objects find new life–folding metal beach chairs transform into wings, antique birdcages become architecture for other-worldly windows, and metal spaghetti strainers become goatees on self-portraits.Dark Fang - a word-play on both of their names (Deborah Jang and Mark Friday) will open at Art Gym Gallery on November 9 from 5 to 8 p.m., and run through December 2, when it will close with a Q&A with the artists.
Jang and Friday will also display some of their individual sculptural works on the walls, to compliment the center piece of the exhibition.
The Art Gym Gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. [Organizer's description]
