Feral Factory’s four-month Residency at the Crash begins with an
exhibition for the Month of Photography. Artists Armando Martinez
and Shana Cordon present a collection of images which illuminate
the themes of urban collage and the collage city.
Martinez’s photography exposes the sublime in the everyday lives
of his subjects, a cross-section of urban dwellers who represent
the heterogeneity of cities. Cordon’s work abstracts the image of
the city, both reducing it to impressions and revealing the
accidental collisions of texture and intention which exist in cities at
every scale. Martinez exposes us to urban life; Cordon, to the
marks this life leaves behind.
This exhibition draws its questions from the urban theories of
Colin Rowe, Fred Koetter, Kevin Lynch, Jane Jacobs, and others.
While Martinez and Cordon set the stage, the exhibition will
continue with three more shows through the end of June, 2017.
