Closes June 23: “To Many Men Strange Fates are Given” Brent GreenAndrew Edlin Gallery, 134 Tenth Avenue, NYCa sculpture and animated film by Brent Green. Continuing his tradition of applying new technologies to his staunchly DIY, American folk roots, To Many Men Strange Fates Are Given is built with deconstructed LCD screens, an elaborate welded steel frame, polarized lenses and sets of delicate machine-milled wooden audio horns, all serving as a platform for a new hand drawn three dimensional animation displayed on two layered panels simultaneously, harkening back to the tradition of animating on glass. The animation can only be seen when the viewer looks through the polarized lenses located at three stations on the sculpture. Otherwise, Green’s film is invisible.
