Faculty Holly Tempo will present Cardboard Revival, a site-specific installation at @ 2A Gallery. A reception is scheduled for Sunday, December 15, 2013, 7-10 pm; with the show running through January 26.
Cardboard Revival represents a cadre of inharmonious interests. Sited in the upscale, developer-renovated San Fernando Building, which is located at the edge of Downtown LA’s skid row area, the space straddles the conflicting realities of urban life. On the one hand, the structure — now filled with chic loft apartments — is a testament to efforts to revitalize Downtown LA; on the other, homeless advocates see the project as having taken the area’s affordable housing stock away from the people who need it the most.
As an artist, Tempo is interested in creating hybridized spaces that engage social issues via the language of painting and abstraction. Borrowing decorative motifs from the San Fernando Building’s Renaissance Revival-style and tropes from the urban environs, such as graffiti and cardboard scraps, Tempo transforms 2A Gallery into a site-specific reflection on approaches to housing that share a neighborhood in spite of their ideological incompatibility. With house paint, markers and spray paint, Tempo works directly on the walls and combines the gilding and rich hues of 16th century Florence with a humbler palette dictated by life on the streets.
Cardboard Revival denotes a mash-up sensibility that attempts to reconcile a difficult situation within the realm of aesthetics. The exhibition title is a tongue-in-cheek allusion to the sometimes-flimsy success of efforts to invigorate or improve the quality of life in communities. The cardboard is, of course, also a sobering reference to the material often used by homeless people to create shelter.
