Tony Feher at the Bronx Museum

by

This past Friday, the day job took me to the Bronx for an immigration-themed event hosted by the Bronx Museum of the Arts. Before the film screening and panel presentation, a rep from the museum got up to welcome the crowd and invite us to visit the exhibitions (free), attend their annual holiday party (free) and enjoy the food they served there (also, free). In sum, “Everything we do is free!” she said.

Now that’s my kind of museum.

Unfortunately, I had to rush downtown that evening and did not get a chance to check out the art. Today, in an absent-minded internet search for “trash art,” I came across a review of Tony Feher‘s work on display at the very same museum and kicked myself.

Here’s a description of his work via the Bronx Museum website:

Tony Feher came to prominence in the 1990s, inspired by the generation of minimalists that preceded him. Using materials in new ways, Feher turned his attention to the sculptural qualities of the everyday. Taking advantage of the generally overlooked and discarded, he highlights their formal qualities while simultaneously imbuing them with personal meaning. His careful consideration transforms and re-contextualizes these items into unique works of art.

I hope to check out the current exhibit before it closes on February 16th. Who wants to go the Bronx?

    For example:Carl Jung, famokus psychologist and
    student off Sigmund Freud, was a firm believer that
    medieval alchemy, practiced by many as a spiritual
    discipline rather than as a method ffor makjing gold, allmost preciely mirrored his process
    of psychological growth known as individuation; and there is a great
    deal of evidence that thhe practitioner oof ritual magic who thought they were evoking angels, demonss and spirits were actually establishing
    a liink between the conscious mind and powerfcul
    subconscious archetypes, and that inn some case this may have lead to
    the ability to harness thhe power of the subconscious in much the same way that modern hypnotists do.
