About

The installation, Orchestrations, explores the vernacular in vintage piano rolls. The physical perforations in the piano roll paper, coded notations for sound, act as a vehicle for light transmissions thus translating orchestrated music into orchestrated light. The work is “played” or activated throughout the day, by the variations and nuances of the sun’s rays. In site-specific exhibitions, public art commissions and collaborative projects Jo Yarrington uses varied combinations of glass, waxed surfaces, found objects and experimental analog photography to investigate the way we perceive objects and images through our senses. These predominately translucent materials function as both a physical framework and symbolic membrane with implications of scale and the integration of architecture as pivotal components. The transmission of images and images formed through optical phenomena are primary elements and are manifested through projection, reflection and refraction. Recent projects have explored environmental issues and the relationship of language and image.Jo Yarrington’s drawings, photographs, and architecturally-based installations have been shown in exhibitions including the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, CT, Yale University, CT, the Rotunda Gallery, Brooklyn, NY, the DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park, MA, Grounds for Sculpture, NJ, and the William Benton Museum of Art, CT. International exhibitions have included Galeria Sala Uno, Italy, Centro de las Artes de Guanajuato, Mexico, Christuskirche, Germany, Glasgow School of Art, Scotland. 2016 exhibitions include Heliotrope at ODETTA, Brooklyn, NY, Edition Tools at the Project Space Gallery, State University of New York at Oneonta and the Containment and Spillage Series, a solo collaborative exhibition at the Humanities Gallery, Long Island University Brooklyn. The artist is a recipient of numerous fellowships and awards, most notably the Pollock Krasner Foundation, the Joan Mitchell Foundation, the MacDowell Colony, the Bronze Prize at the International Biennial Exhibition of Photographic Art, Museum of Contemporary Art in Skopje, Macedonia and in 2012 she was represented in the Berlin Biennial.
