Smack Mellon, NY
My Role: Curator / Produced multimedia exhibition and managed installation and deinstallation.
Christine Sciulli's installation, ROIL creates an immersive experience that transforms Smack Mellon's gallery space to reflect its historic function as a boiler house that created steam heat and energy for nearby buildings in the early 1900's. A multi channel video influenced by the generation of pressurized steam is projected onto sculptural fabric masses.
Christine Sciulli is a visual artist whose primary medium is projected light. Sciulli was selected for the American Academy of Arts and Letters 2014 Invitational Exhibition of Visual Arts. Her installations have been shown in the Parrish Art Museum, South Fork Museum of Natural History, Frederieke Taylor Gallery, Edward Hopper House Art Center, and the Islip Art Museum where Janet Goleas described her installation to be “a quiet riot of controlled chaos.”Sciulli holds an Architectural Engineering degree from Penn State University, graduating as a Besal Scholar, as well as BFA and MFA degrees in Combined Media from Hunter College, where she was awarded the Esther Fish Perry Award, BFA merit award, and the Leutz/Reidel Travel Grant. Sciulli’s work is part of the New Museum’s Rhizome ArtBase (Rhizome.org). She is on the Artist Council of the Church Street School of Music and Art and has been adjunct faculty in the MFA Lighting Program at Parsons the New School for Design.
