Opening Reception Friday March 18, 7–10 pm

Greenpoint Terminal Gallery is pleased to present At Your Leisure, an exhibition of recent work by Jordan Kasey and Alyse Ronayne.

The shape of leisure to come: Standing between the sculpture and the painting, in awe of a fake leaf and the suggestion of antique pewter… Where are you? I’m at your leisure;
A kind cut gains one admittance to a void, the aisle, painted space relates to space occupied by a string of poms. Between the column and the bus ride, leisure is relative–a value established in relation to a productive consumption of time: many expert leisurists forbid eating and sleeping. Bending silver prongs between the filaments, your vacation desktop peeks at a stone being dropped of a cliff. To reach a galaxy on the other side of your feet, a basic building block is to take a step. Is the void an absence of, and then, what is it relative to, and where does the energy lost end up, the energy continually lost by one that’s crossing it? But as I poured over the array of screens, that particle paraded off across the horizon.
