LAUGHING AT CLOUDS — The Chimney is pleased to present "Laughing at clouds", the first solo exhibition of French artist Gilles Barbier in New York City. Building onto the symbolism and otherworldliness of Mary Poppins’ enchanting story, Barbier transforms the Chimney into a surrealist set. This new commission presents numerous black levitating umbrellas installed at different heights. Strings of speech bubbles fall from their hinged ribs like raindrops.

SMALL LANDSCAPES FROM NEAR AND FAR — For her first exhibition at The Chimney, Krauze has documented two geographies: the Mexican land and New York’s urban terrain. In both locations, the artist gathered, altered and replicated earth’s fragments and recorded the effect of time on local street surfaces. Interlaced in a complex dialogue, these two combined sites represent a personal topography and an emotional map that questions the notion of territorial belonging.
