NEW YORK, NY.- SculptureCenter
announces Now Showing: Jory Rabinovitz. Now Showing is a program that highlights a single artwork or project in areas throughout SculptureCenter's building. Working with artists to find new ways of approaching the unique architecture of SculptureCenter, Now Showing is an exploratory and flexible mode for presenting artworks and projects to audiences.
New York-based artist Jory Rabinovitz presents a new site-specific sculptural work within a space recently created by the current renovation of the SculptureCenter building. The work, Non Olet, starts in the gallery space and extends into the mens and women's bathrooms, returning to the original site, and connecting these disparate areas. The title of the work references the Latin phrase pecunia non olet, or money doesnt stink, a reference to Roman emperor Vespian's Urine Tax, where urine was collected from the public bathrooms of the working class and resold for various chemical processes, entering the chain of commerce and trade.
Rabinovitzs sculptural works investigate boundaries of material and metaphor and their social and societal actualities. The actual compounds comprising exchange systems and their telestic potentials are explored in sculptures that reimagine relationships between substances, considering their attributes and utility.
Jory Rabinovitz lives and works in New York, NY. Rabinovitz has recently exhibited at Martos Gallery, New York; Abrons Art Center New York, Tanya Leighton, Berlin; Off Vendome, Düsseldorf; Galerie Balice Hertling, Paris, and Night Gallery Los Angeles. Rabinovitz has received numerous awards and residencies including the The Rema Hort Mann Foundation visual art grant (2014) and the Emerging Artist Fellowship, Socrates Sculpture Park, Long Island City, NY (2010)
