PROJECTION 007: ESTHER RUIZ, Partial Light Index
“Conquering matter is to understand it, and understanding matter is necessary to understanding the universe and ourselves: and that therefore Mendeleev's Periodic Table, which just during those weeks we were learning to unravel, was poetry.”
— Primo Levi, The Periodic Table
CHART is pleased to present our seventh PROJECTION exhibition, Partial Light Index, a solo presentation of new sculptures by Brooklyn-based artist Esther Ruiz. Building on her practice of combining Minimalist forms and materials with colorful palettes and outer space-inspired fictionalizations, these newest works offer a deeper look into Ruiz’s rigorous investigations into the natural elements that make up our world and how alien at times those basic compounds can seem. The exhibition will run from May 12 to June 30, with an opening reception on May 12, from 6 – 8 pm.
