STAMFORD, CT - As a gallery committed to not only game-changing its community, but game-changing the way in which its own artists experience their art, the Fernando Luis Alvarez Gallery welcomes the public to witness the re-composition of Kirsten Reynolds’s installation Structo, which has been up in the gallery since November. The room-sized installation will be cut down into smaller wall sculptures into an exhibition called Fragments.

Reynolds, who has had a number of museum shows, has never before attempted this with her work; her massive installations are generally disposed of, or elements are reused in later installations, once the exhibition period ends. She has done such installations many times over, having exhibited extensively and in shows at museums such as the Currier Museum of Art, Islip Art Museum and DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park. However, it was due to the collaboration between the gallery and artist that the work would now, in the process of dismantling her installation, be re-purposed into smaller collectible pieces. The gallery will be pricing the sculptures beginning at $25; each signed and dated.

This is a first for the artist, “I am excited to see my work re-envisioned in a smaller scale,” she said. “This will bring an entirely new dimension to my work, where I not only have to consider the piece as a whole but also how it can be broken down into smaller structures. It takes it to a new level.”

An opening party for Fragments will be held on Friday, February 7th from 6 to 9pm at 96 Bedford Street, Stamford, CT.
