Bruce Martin Gallery

November 18 – December 9, 2016
Opening reception Friday, November 18, 5–8pm

Bruce Martin Gallery is pleased to present Ficus Interfaith Research & Properties. There will be an opening reception on Friday, November 18th, 5-8pm and the exhibition will be on view through December 9th by appointment only.

What’s beautiful about the stories we tell each other is the agency we have to pick up, recreate, bend and build new stories. It is our weapon against history- that denser, less malleable narrative that feels out of our control. For as science is to truth, history holds no candle to what we make of it.

Ficus Interfaith presents three sculptures for their exhibition at Bruce Martin Gallery. A light-box, a door and a blocked window conspire to reflect on the mythologized events before us.

Ficus Interfaith Research & Properties is organized by Ryan Bush (b. 1990 Denver, CO) and Raphael Cohen (b. 1989 New York, NY) and based in New York City.

Puppet Show

Dear Friend,

It’s with great excitement that we extend this invitation to participate in the first-ever 15 Orient Puppet Show to be held at 15 Orient Avenue, Brooklyn, NY on the evening of the 29th of October in anticipation of Halloween. Embracing the entirety of the house and yard (which will themselves be dressed for the occasion), the show will feature a troupe of puppets of all sizes and types– from the common finger-puppet to the carnival (body) puppet, the table-top puppet, the marote, the tickle bug and the marionette—and will no doubt extend to include those cousin to puppets, namely, poppets, that is, mommets or pippies (an exemplar of which is the Scandinavian “Kitchen Witch”). You may choose to perform your puppet, bringing it for a time to the center stage or marking-off some space of the house you find fit, or you may decide to simply situate it in relation to (or isolation from) the others. In the case that your puppet doesn’t directly dictate your attire, we suggest that you nonetheless dress for the occasion.

As time is already running short, we would also ask that you RSVP as soon as possible and inform us in advance of any special arrangements your puppet/performance might require.

Sincerely Yours,

15 Orient
