Petra Feriancova: Theory of a City or the Possibilities of an A4 Opens at ISCP


 

Last Wednesday the first solo exhibition in ISCP's history opened to the public. Theory of the City or the Possibilities of an A4 presents work by current resident Petra Feriancova from Slovakia which revolve around the international-standard paper size, A4. Working within this limitation, Feriancova fills the gallery with variations of this theme, lining the gallery space with pages of text from the play Hamlet, stacking National Geographic magazines taken from her father’s extensive collection and displaying works in the A4 format from friends and family that report on tales and realities of New York City.  Other pieces include a video projection of love letters written in 2000-2001 from a past lover to the artist and a slide projection that questions the viewer’s perceptions of seeing.
