JILLIAN MAYER

"CHIME TIME"

Jillian Mayer’s artistic practice is a means of processing how our physical world and bodies are impacted and reshaped by our participation in various landscapes. Through videos, photography, painting, performance, sculpture, and installation, Mayer’s projects explore how technology affects our identities, lives, and experiences.

 

 

Mayer flows between the points of tension between our artificial and physical worlds and makes work that attempts to inhabit the increasingly porous boundary between them. Relax and play melodic chimes pitched one octave below middle C in Mayer's greenhouse-clubhouse lounge. The artist has used industrial materials to create this environment that fuses the interior and exterior environments to create a synthetic place of refuge from the cacophony of today's world.

ARTIST BIO

With wry humor and a sense of lively energy, Jillian Mayer explores identity in the internet age and the divide between reality and virtual reality, in drawings, photographs, installations, performances, videos, and a “meta-pop music” collective, #PostModem. Social media platforms are integral to her work, in which she evokes the vibe of the social media zeitgeist.The mindless appearance of the Miami-based artist’s work belies their fraught questions about the relationship between humans and technology.

 

 

Jillian Mayer has been shown at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts, the Bass Museum of Art, Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, Perez Art Museum, MoMa P.S.1, Russia’s National Center for Contemporary Art, the Farnsworth Art Museum, the Guggenheim Museum, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice, Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, and the Deutsche Guggenheim in Berlin, amongst others.

WHAT DREW YOU TO FLUTTER?

The chance to create an environment where people forget where they are.

HOW DOES ART MAKE PEOPLE- AND YOU- HAPPY?

Art can give one the ability to step outside oneself, but it is very humanly.

WHAT DOES 'PLAY DATE' MEAN TO YOU?

Leisure and play can often be overlooked in our society yet are vital to living a full experience. When I think back to some of the most fun moments in my life, I do not recall replying to emails as part of those experiences.
