About the Artist:
While finishing her undergraduate degree in printmaking at Ohio University, Elise Glick’s work evolved towards installation. After graduation (2005) she took an exciting opportunity to learn construction at Habitat for Humanity in NYC and has been producing large-scale projects ever since. She has participated as an artist-in-residence at the Women’s Studio Workshop and the Vermont Studio Center. Michel Foucault’s text ‘Of Other Spaces – Heterotopias’ has allowed Elise to more broadly address America’s relationship with the elderly. By extracting both structure and interior design from these ‘other spaces’, she emphasizes these marginalized places where people are ‘in a state of crisis’. The collision of the physical, psychological, emotional and rational human experience informs the contexts from which she develops her installations. At the Guggenheim Museum (from 2006-2007) she worked on the exhibition/construction crew. From then until now Elise has worked as an expeditor at Christie’s auction house. Through these jobs she has learned about the invisible structures that compose an exhibition, as well as how making basic changes and using simple techniques galleries are transformed overnight to accommodate a wide range of property and expected audiences. She is beginning to relate these hidden tactics to those employed by a nursing home, for residents and their visitors; questioning the things we are not supposed to notice.
