March 19, 2013, New York, NY – NOWhere Limited Contemporary Art – This Thursday evening, March 21, “Plastic Gold Mine,” a sculptural installation by Jeffrey Gitei Hall will be on view as the eighth exhibit at NOWhere Limited’s “All Roads Project.” It’s a one night only viewing, from 6 until 8:30pm, curbside on West 24th Street, between 10th and 11th Avenues in the Chelsea neighborhood of NY, NY.

“The new sculptures aim to understand the ephemeral elements that affect the making and viewing of art,” says the artist. “My approach is to integrate the analysis of materials with the definition of an artwork independently from its medium. By defining the artwork’s behaviors and strategies, one can reinterpret the work each time it is recreated without losing essential meaning, even when its current medium becomes obsolete. It is working and creating with change.”

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
American artist Jeffrey Gitei Hall is known for his absurd and personal approach to formalism. Using banal, everyday materials like cardboard, plastic wrap, tape, and fabric, Jeffrey creates abstract sculpture and installations that are an investigation in reductive form and content. Jeffrey’s artwork references images, materials, and issues that are evident in science, philosophy, and art. The combination of these elements produces unique objects constructed through a bizarre set of reclaimed and repurposed behaviors. Although Jeffrey uses personal, historical and cultural context as elements within his work, he insists that his sculpture and installations are not about teaching or instructing the viewer.

Born in 1969, Jeffrey has lived in Japan and several cities in America while his father was in military service. He studied at the University of Nebraska-Omaha where he received a BFA in Painting and continued his training at Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia where he received an MFA in Sculpture. He currently lives and works in New York, New York.

NOWhere Limited’s All Roads Project is a new experiment in alternative exhibition space.
Conceived with a “waste not want not” mentality, artists Elisha Sarti and Scott Lickstein, co-founders of NOWhere Limited, converted their SUV into one of Chelsea’s smallest art spaces.
