September 15 - October 20, 2011
Opening Reception September 15, 6-8 pm
Apple Box Daybed is a new sculpture by Thomas McDonell, and the centerpiece of an exhibition by the same name at Kathleen Cullen Fine Arts.
An 'apple box' is a piece of equipment most often found on film sets and used as a riser to bring props in and out of a camera's frame. In this show, sixty of these boxes have been transformed into a daybed on which visitors to the gallery are invited to sit or lie.
Also, on the walls of the exhibition are several new pieces that, like the Daybed, recontextualize the visual language of contemporary film production.
