2430 Coral St
Little Berlin is pleased to present “Magali Duzant: A Means To Measure” as our feature exhibition in March 2017. Please join us on Saturday, March 4th, for the opening reception!
Opening reception: Saturday, March 4, 6-9pm
Exhibition: March 4-26, 2017
Gallery Hours: Sundays 1-4 and by appointment.
Little Berlin is located at 2430 Coral Street, Philadelphia, PA 19125
“A Means To Measure” reveals Duzant’s research into how the sky has been observed and described by historical acts of archiving and the creation of a series of tools to measure the blueness, darkness, and cloud cover of the sky alongside the movement of the sun. The show will include durational photographic prints created in the gallery over the course of the installation. Out of this process-based practice, romantic gestures emerge from the data and act as answers to a rapidly changing, digitized world.
The exposures will commence at the March 4th opening reception, and will conclude, together with a workshop and artist presentation, on March 26th.
This exhibition is curated by Rebekah Flake.
Magali Duzant is an interdisciplinary artist based in New York City. Her work combines the poetics of perception matched with a scientific approach in collecting data to examine the subjectivity of seeing and the role of technology as mediator of lived experience. Her work has been exhibited internationally including at the Queens Museum, Spring Break Art Fair, Fridman Gallery in NY, Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, and the Sydney College of Art amongst others. She was awarded a 2015 Queens Council on The Arts Grant for her public work, Live Streaming Sunset, a 2016 SU-CASA grant from the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs and has held residencies in Berlin, Italy, Sydney, and New York. She holds an MFA in Photography from Parsons The New School for Design and a BHA in Fine Arts and Visual Culture from Carnegie Mellon University.
Rebekah Flake is an artist and curator based in Philadelphia and a current member of Little Berlin. She received an MFA in 2014 from Tyler School of Art and an MA in 2009 from the Williams College Graduate Program in the History of Art.

Chinese Paper-Cutting Workshop
Sunday March 5th, 2017
$25 (materials included), register here: https://goo.gl/nd8qwt
The art of Chinese paper-cutting is a traditional part of Chinese culture and one of the beautiful treasures of Chinese art. It dates back to the Northern and Southern Dynasties (420-589). Originally associated with worshipping ancestors and gods, today, paper cut outs are used to pass good fortune and wishes onto others. The patterns are often representations of events associated with festivals, bumper harvest of crops, stories from folk opera and fairy tales, children or animals, and others. In this two-hour workshop, we are going to study basic folding and cutting skills of Chinese paper-cutting, the meaning behind the traditional patterns, and will create contemporary paper-cutting.
About the teacher:
Xin Mancini is an artist from China who graduated from the University of the Arts and teaches at the Chinese Arts Center.
Her work is in the current show at Space 2033 for Jan/Feb and will continue to be on display the night of the workshop. Her paper-cuttings utilize rice paper and watercolor inks from China, cut into simple and traditonal forms and hand-dyed. Her paper-cuttings share stories and suggest a sense of peace and stillness.
