Yael Brotman at loop

Teacher's House by Yael Brotman c2010

This is the second week of the print-based exhibition at loop Gallery by multimedia artist Yael Brotman entitled Mnemonic Stoop. This exhibition is presented as part of Open Studio's PRINTOPOLIS: International Symposium on Printmaking.

Relying on both the precision and imprecision of memory, and, referencing Gaston Bachelard's The Poetics of Space, Yael Brotman documents the houses in which she has lived. Brotman repurposes scraps of etched Kurotani paper into two- and three-dimensional works that examine the tonality of intimacy and the psychological elasticity of an image, reconstructing architectural details which sag with mnemonic import.

Gallery hours at loop this week are 1 pm to 5 pm on Wednesday through Saturday and 1 pm to 4 pm on Sunday.

As well, Yael will be participating in a group exhibition of small scale paintings/drawings at Lessedra Gallery in Sofia, Bulgaria December 15 – February 15, 2011.
