A bench for the night

Blurred, 2019, L 108in x H60in, mixed media on fabric, public installation at The Yard: Gowanus, Brooklyn, NY, from May 17 - July 26, 2019

For Blurred at The Yard - Gowanus curated by Jessica Porter, Allié integrates collected materials such as torn garments, strips of plastic, party accessories and small pieces of found jewelry into her work. For her site specific work at The Yard she specifically collected materials from The Yard’s users who dropped items in a box for several months preceding the creation of the work. Allié’s work is inspired by the observation of people’s every day motions and actions. The combined pieces create figurative outlines blurred into existence. They question the presence of the body in the city and the ways of inhabiting spaces.
