March 24 – April 24, 2022
Opening: Thursday March 24, 7 – 8 PM EST
United by an openness towards experimentation, photographer Andrew Boyle and fashion designer Jenny Lai have been making images together for the past eight years. Their works embrace the tension between the handmade and the digitally made, between improvisation and structure, and derive from an exploration of movement whether it’s garment-making or image-making.
Jenny’s design process usually begins with exploring an imagined “function” within the garment or between the body and garment, incorporating sketching, draping, writing, and moving between several mediums. While developing his motion collages, Andrew also finds himself down unplanned paths, moving between printing, cutting, pasting, scanning, stop-motion, and digital editing tools in order to discover the final form. This virtual exhibition presents select photographs and motion collages from their collaborations over the years, as well as new works created specifically for this venue.
Unplanned Paths is presented by The Chockablock (Parcel -130, 20), coinciding with the first ever Metaverse Fashion Week (MVFW 2022).
