This week, BTR went to check out “Positive Pathways,” an exhibition by artist collective GCC which focuses on the increasingly popular trend of healthy living and positive lifestyles gaining momentum in the Middle East. This exhibition at Mitchell-Innes & Nash features wall sculptures, an installation and sound. The sculptures are created using thermoforming, an industrial process which involves heating thermoplastic sheets over a mold. In this instance, velvet-like burgundy sheets are molded over large 3D printed models taken from screenshots of YouTube videos and images found online, whose figures represent leaders in the positive energy movement, and when placed together create narratives of cultural creation and extinction. Positive Pathways is on display until November 23rd at Mitchell-Innes & Nash gallery, 524 West 26th St. in Chelsea.
