For her solo exhibition at Knockdown Center, Lourdes Correa-Carlo has produced seven new works in dialogue with urban embodiment and the visual politics of city space.

About

Through sculpture, drawing, photography, video, and installation, Intended Trajectories reflects the artist’s ongoing engagement with her material surroundings, as well as her interest in the relationship between the body and the built environment.

While navigating public space in New York City, Correa-Carlo has been taking photographs of architectural facades, construction sites, objects discarded on the street. With these images, she employs a range of materials—often industrial or salvaged—in order to examine the more abstract aspects of physical structures, drawing out the social and psychological effects of architecture and urban planning.

Within the exhibition, a series of site-specific installations engage the architectural specificities of Knockdown Center, referencing the building’s former use as a glass factory, and later as the site of a frame and door company. These works—creeping across walls and embedding themselves in doorways—mimic, augment, or conceal the gallery’s vestigial industrial features, unsettling the exhibition’s frame. Other sculptural and drawing-based works introduce outside architectural elements into the gallery, yielding a constellation of cityscapes that alter the viewer’s sense of location and scale. The remaining works, a series of vinyl prints on glass and a two-channel video, embrace the familiar sights of the city’s public transportation systems, the interstitial and subterranean spaces of waiting and watching.

Together, the works in the exhibition look inward and outward at once, mapping a psychogeography of encounter between artist and city, body and building.
