BROOKLYN:

Tiger Strikes Asteroid: “Inna Babaeva: It’s the Little Things That Matter”

Tiger Strikes Asteroid New York presents “Inna Babaeva: It’s the Little Things That Matter,” on view from May 13 to June 26, 2016. An Opening Reception will be held on Saturday, May 21 from 6 to 9 p.m.

On view is Inna Babaeva's ongoing body of work, "IKEA Invasions." The sculptural works are altered IKEA products that have been humanized and made unusual as a commentary on the identically uniform nature of the objects around us. In some cases, the completed works were brought back to IKEA in order to examine commodity values and whether the works were considered more or less valuable to consumers after they had entered the sphere of art rather than functional objects.

Tiger Strikes Asteroid is located at 1329 Willoughby Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11237. www.tigerstrikesasteroid.com.

Five Myles: “ABYSSAL: Installation by Sara Jimenez”

FiveMyles presents “ABYSSAL” an installation by Sara Jimenez on view from May 28 to July 3, 2016. An Opening Reception will take place on Saturday, May 28 from 5 to 8 p.m. An Artist Talk and Panel Discussion will take place on Sunday, June 12, at 4 p.m.

On view is an installation by Sara Jimenez consisting of hand-woven nets filled with objects that have been transformed and altered by the ocean. The nets emit pieces of recorded interviews with the artist's living and deceased family members from the Philippines, created in collaboration with Or Zubalsky. The installation explores personal and historical narratives through the "wide nets" symbolically cast into the ocean connecting New York and the Phillippines, the two spaces the artist associates with the notion of "home." On select dates, two performers will continue to weave and create new nets, alluding to the never-ending attempt to understand cultural memory.

Performances will take place on Sunday, June 5, 12, 19, 26 and on July 3 at 4 p.m.

FiveMyles is located at 558 St Johns Pl, Brooklyn, NY 11238. www.fivemyles.org.

Cheim & Read: “Sean Scully: Circa 70”

Cheim & Read presents “Sean Scully: Circa 70” on view from May 20 to July 1, 2016 in Ridgewood, Queens.
