Joan Grubin
Partial Inventory of Totally Useless Objects

2009-2015

About

Weaving is a form of drawing, of plotting and connecting lines. Fabricating a three-dimensional, transparent object using thin strips of paper with differing colors on either side results in a kind of two-sided drawing in space. The repetitive, meditative act of weaving has given Grubin the uncanny sense of connecting with ancestors across the centuries through gestures that unconsciously invoke early modes of survival – weaving nets, clothing, traps, and forms of shelter. With the bright airy space of ODETTA in mind, Grubin is able to push a new strategy of weaving strands of paper into shapes which, through intuitive engineering, possess a tensile strength that exceeds the strength of the paper itself. Joan Grubin is a New York-based visual artist and writer. Grubin has shown her work in solo and group exhibitions including the New York Public Library, the Parrish Art Museum, the Weatherspoon Museum, the University of Maine, and the Kentler International Drawing Space and Garvey Simon Gallery, NYC. She was awarded a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship In 2008 and was a MacDowell Colony Fellow in 2012.
