At Madoo: Parrish Road Show 2019: Laurie Lambrecht Limn to Limb
October 5, 2019 at 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm
The Madoo Conservancy is pleased to participate in this year’s Parrish Road Show, the Parrish Art Museum’s off-site cultural engagement program, with an exhibition by Bridgehampton artist Laurie Lambrecht. The exhibition will be on view at Madoo from October 5 through November 3, 2019, with an opening reception on Saturday, October 5, 3-5:00 p.m., during which time visitors will have the opportunity to meet the artist and explore the installation throughout the grounds of Madoo. This exhibition is free and open to the public during the opening reception and during Madoo’s open hours, Fridays and Saturdays from noon to 4:00 p.m.
The site-specific installation, Laurie Lambrecht: Limn to Limb, celebrates the legacy of Robert Dash’s gardens by responding to Madoo’s environment and brightly-painted structural details with interventions that include photography, printmaking, weaving, and knitting. Limn to Limb comprises three elements: large-scale prints of tree bark, hand-knitted covers for stones, weavings with photo printed fabric, and the use of hand-dyed twine and burlap as a decorative, contrasting element on the grounds.
Laurie Lambrecht, a native of Bridgehampton who works in photography and fiber, has been featured in numerous solo exhibitions in the U.S. and abroad, and her photographs are in the collections of the National Gallery of Art, D.C., and the Parrish Art Museum, among others. In the early 1990’s, Lambrecht photographed Roy Lichtenstein and his process. Roy Lichtenstein in His Studio, the monograph of her project, was published by Monacelli Press in 2011. She has worked with theater artist Robert Wilson at the Watermill Center since 1993, and from 2012–2014 Lambrecht photographed a documentary project for the Rauschenberg Foundation (Florida). She was recently a fellow at artist residencies there and at the Virginia Center of the Creative Arts and Vermont Studio Center.
