Viviane Romabldi Seppey: Jurong, 2009  white and yellow pages from Singapore phonebooks, 38x38

An international exhibit of varying media from Japan, Germany, Korea, Australia, the United States, Czech Republic, Cayman Islands, Estonia, Japan, and Italy, Still Spot is a group show of twelve artists, who offer works that are quiet at first look, but upon closer inspection will reveal intensity of either technique, material, or affect.
  These diverse practices include labor-intensive precise cuts in paper, hundreds of magazine eyes behind a translucent vellum veil, rock-hard slate that has been filed down meticulously against its nature, and tiny five-inch square drawings that are so intricate that they are at the very limits of our ability to see.  At the other extreme is a room-size installation where we stand in the midst of hundreds of nine-foot high skinny strips of paper, so we become lost in the white quietude.  This totality of works is assembled to bring the gallery visitor into a "still spot" in the midst of dynamic Manhattan, a momentary oasis in the center of our busy lives.
