This is November’s Studio Rent Edition. I don’t normally post them to this blog, but I can’t connect to the page I normally post these to. This is a series of monthly editions (each is an edition of ten + 1 AP) that are priced out at 1/10th of my studio rent in Brooklyn. Selling all of these will subsidize my studio for that month. The AP is always mailed to someone for free as a surprise. November’s edition is 15 4″x6″ photographs. The photographs are of damaged photographs from Printed Matter’s archive. Printed Matter was hit hard from Sandy, and lost most of the things stored in their basement, including their archive. These are damaged photographs before they were sent out for emergency conservation through a process of deep freezing. The edition also comes with 1 color photo-copy that describes the piece, and includes the SRE stamp. They are $25 USD for US orders, and $35 USD for international orders (they are usually priced at $23 each, a few extra dollars were added to cover printing costs). If you would like one, please email me. Payment is accepted through Paypal, but please email me before you pay, this is only an edition of 10. As I am writing this there are 5 left. If you are interested in past editions that aren’t sold out, email me.

FORCE FIELDS : Curated by Alexis Granwell and Jenny Jaskey
November 2 – December 15, 2012
Opening Reception: Friday, November 2, 2012, 6pm – 10pm
Tiger Strikes Asteroid is pleased to announce the opening of its November exhibition, Force Fields, with work by Nanna Debois Buhl, David Horvitz, and Jenny Perlin, organized by Alexis Granwell and Jenny Jaskey. The exhibition is part of a series of artistic programs celebrating the work of filmmaker Ross McElwee. Tiger Strikes Asteroid is partnering with the University of Pennsylvania’s Cinema Studies Department to bring McElwee to Philadelphia to screen his latest film Photographic Memory on November 8, 2012.
Taking McElwee’s filmic process as its point of departure, the exhibition brings together artists whose practices might be described as documentary, but only insofar as they remain rooted in notions of process, drawing from personal and intuitive relationships to their media while simultaneously invoking strategies of distance and reflection. Recording the pulls and attractions of circumstance, their works relay the power of force fields, dynamic topologies changing with both time and experience.
From the exhibition’s essay:
Filmmaker Ross McElwee describes his documentary method as a kind of force field. Camera in hand, he records everyday encounters with family members and friends, illuminating these conversations with the electricity of the camera’s gaze. His insistence to assert his own presence sets his films apart from purists of the cinéma vérité tradition; McElwee’s work is affecting precisely because it brings together direct cinema with personal interruptions that make his subjects’ and viewers acutely aware of these observations. The tension of watching others watch themselves being watched is palpable.
Alexis Granwell is a Philadelphia artist and member of Tiger Strikes Asteroid. Alexis Granwell has exhibited internationally including a 2005 solo exhibition at the Europos Parkas Museum, Vilinius, Lithuania. Other venues include International Print Center New York, Delaware Center for Contemporary Art, University of Richmond Art Museum, The Print Center Ontario, Shoshana Wayne Gallery and a recent solo show at Bryan Miller Gallery in Houston, TX. Granwell received her MFA (2007) at the University of Pennsylvania. She lives in Philadelphia and teaches at Tyler School of Art.
Jenny Jaskey is curator and writer based in New York, whose recent projects include Haim Steinbach, The Artist’s Institute, New York; The End(s) of the Library, Goethe-Institut New York; and Mad Garland, Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College. She is currently co-editing a book for Sternberg Press on new materialism and art. Jaskey began her career in Philadelphia when she owned a gallery in Northern Liberties in the mid-2000s.
