Winter Workspace 2012
Glyndor Gallery | January 3 – February 12, 2012

Sabrina Gschwandtner reactivates the beauty of winter at Wave Hill by creating illuminated film quilts comprised of 16mm film footage shot onsite combined with found footage. This new work concerning landscape builds on previous pieces that employ traditional quilt patterns and substitute film for scraps of fabric. Gschwandtner lives in Brooklyn. She received a BA in art/semiotics from Brown University and an MFA from the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts at Bard College. Her work has been exhibited internationally and will be included in 40 Under 40: Craft Futures, at Renwick Gallery, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington DC, opening in July. Residencies include the International Artists Studio Program in Sweden, the Museum of Arts and Design, New York, and the MacDowell Colony. From 2002–7 she edited and published the 'zine’ KnitKnit, which is now in the permanent collections of The Museum of Modern Art, the New York Public Library, and the Fine Arts Library, Fogg Art Museum at Harvard University.
