Address: 1414 Grand St, Gr Fl, Hoboken, NJ 07030
Opening Reception: Tuesday, June 28, 2016 5:00 – 9:00 pm

Falcon Power presents Formless Threads / Stratified Dimensions, a curated exhibition documenting the uneasy balance between chaos and order. Complex growth is entwined with precarious futures and timeless dimensions in paintings by Tim Daly and Roy Kinzer, and a site-specific installation by KC Tidemand.
The exhibition runs from June 28 – September 10, 2016 (open Tuesday evenings and by appointment), and presents a study into the nature of urban rhythms, complexities, architectural structure and unreal dimensions. The result is art that resonates with personal meaning and historic perspective.
Curated by Roy Kinzer, Formless Threads / Stratified Dimensions offers an opportunity to view each artist’s unique insight and practice.
This exhibition is supported by 1414 Grand Street, Hoboken, NJ 07030

Emergence: New works by KC Tidemand
I am happy to announce my first solo show in NYC on June 10th!
Emergence: New Works by KC Tidemand
Curated by Jung Hee Mun
Rabbit Hole Gallery - 33 Washington Street, Dumbo Brooklyn, NYC
Emergence: New Works by KC Tidemand is an exhibition referencing the modern limbo we face in the technological tundra. It is composed solely of two-dimensional works center around the traditional subject of the landscape. Flourishing future cities and machinery are depicted within desolate environments. With the artist's background in installation, these flat landscapes verge on the three-dimensional by virtue of how they are installed in the space. The show consists of two photographic pieces, two oil paintings, a large drawing on paper, a hand-etched Plexi piece, and a drawn textile with metal detailing. Although they vary in material and process, they all share a visual language and a barren, yet abundant nature.
Meticulously made and prepared, these pieces serve as much as a timeline as a depiction of space. The tradition of mapping is a central theme throughout the exhibition, with the change from hand drawn maps to computerized GPS systems being opposing influences in the artworks. Each piece has its own schema with data given, as well as withheld, creating a dual characteristic of absences and abundance of information speckled through the gallery space. The viewer is left to fill out the blanks and imagine what should be presented. Playing with our imaginations and sentiments towards a dystopian future Tidemand’s work mirrors the twenty-first-century status: a space between automation and manual labor, reconciling the gap through her laborious and often monotonous processes. Her art disrupts the flow found in the industrial and mechanical by her distinct and persistent use of the human hand. This, in turn, produces a dichotomy in the work, between the soft and hard, blurred and sharp. Tidemand shows how repetitive yet unique mark making creates a universe onto itself, a series of information all beautifully rendered in an ordered mess. Emergence refers both to our deepest fear and highest hopes for the growing interchangeability between the individual and the technological landscape surrounding them.
KC Tidemand (b.1988) is an artist and educator, originally from Norway. She received her Bachelor's degree in Studio Art and Philosophy from Skidmore College and her Masters in Fine Arts from the School of Visual Arts in NYC in 2015. Tidemand’s artwork deals with the notion of production and expansion, drawing influence from the polarity between reductive and emergent systems; where the former is characterized by its hierarchical networks while the latter is a decentralized web of connectivity. Using these two different systems as a tableau for the work, she plays with the limits of their visual properties and through this, explores how they affect our behavior, through liberation or restriction. Tidemand is a founding member of Art Theory Project; an art collective focused on bringing a contemporary art dialogue to the local communities and schools in NYC. She has shown internationally, including several galleries in Norway and the United States. She is currently living and working in New York City.
Jung Hee Mun (b.1983) is an artist, educator and independent curator based in New York City. Mun earned her Master’s degree in Fine Arts with a focus in an interdisciplinary practice from School of Visual Arts in NYC and Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts in printmaking from the University of Texas at San Antonio. Mun’s recent work includes interactive projection, participatory performance, video, and photography. Mun explores issues of identity, violence, information infrastructure and sociopolitical ideologies in forms of fictions and dreams triggered by her identity as a Korean-American. Mun served as a cultural ambassador for Department for Culture & Creative Development of the city of San Antonio, Texas. She is a founding member of Art Theory Project, an art collective focused on connecting local communities with local artists by organizing art classes, exhibitions, and lectures. Mun’s works are in a collection of the University of Texas at San Antonio. She is currently living and working in NYC.
Bedford and Bowery write up
A rather beautifully written piece about my emergence installation at El Museo at SVA.

Check out this little write up about the group show ElMuseo@SVA that I am a part of.
El Barrio Museo @ SVA group show
Upcoming show January 16 2016!
elmuseo@SVA represents a coming together of two New York institutions: El Museo del Barrio and the School of Visual Arts. Founded by artist Raphael Montanez Ortiz and local activists, parents and teachers in East Harlem, El Museo del Barrio’s original mission was to support the art and culture of Puerto Rico. By the early 1970s that mission expanded to include all of Latin America and Latino communities in the Unites States. The work on view in the exhibition explores the aesthetic and thematic affinities of these different but like-minded communities. In the words of curator Aranda-Alvarado: “At various stages of their careers, the artists in the show act as contemporary anthropologists gathering objects or inspiration from the urban landscape, engaging with issues around migration and the body, exploring space and architecture, tradition and craft.”
On view in the SVA Chelsea Gallery, 601 West 26th Street, 15th floor, with an opening reception on Thursday, January 21 from 6-8pm.
There will be a panel discussion in the gallery with curator Rocio Aranda-Avarado and artists Manuel Acevedo, K.C. Tidemand, Denise Treizman and Alejandro Guzman on Tuesday, February 16 from 6-7:30pm.
