Parsons Faculty Sara Jimenez of Redell & Jimenez, Featured in “LAND/FORM”


Parsons faculty, Sara Jimenez of Redell & Jimenez, will have work on exhibit in the show, “LAND/FORM,” opening tonight at Usagi Gallery in New York.

When the French Academy ranked the genres of art in the seventeenth century, landscape and still life were considered the least important as they did not involve human subject matter. However, the five artists in LAND / FORM approach landscape, not as something external to the human experience, but as a means of contemplating memory, body, and personal narrative. Here, landscape evokes the transience of earthly life, the affinity between the body and nature, and the centrality of place in the formation of memory and identity.

Redell & Jimenez’s video work Expansion (2012) also abstracts the human form, but juxtaposes the artists’ amorphous movement with the stillness of their natural surroundings.
