The second exhibition of P!’s six-month cycle on copying focuses on replicas, remakes, and recurrences. Margaret Lee’s uncanny storefront display juxtaposes graphic backdrop painting with simulated fruit, while Oliver Laric premieres a new Mandarin version of his distributed video essay, Versions  (2009–onward). London-based collective Åbäkecaptures silicon molds for a Danish/Chinese Pietà in “hacked intaglio,” and Amie Siegel’sBerlin Remake (2005) approaches East German filmic precedents as contemporary scores for reprise and re-performance. The presentation of these disparate works at P! establishes frameworks for considering authenticity and origination across a variety of cultural contexts.

| SSWTR & Friends | 12/12/12 Deluxe Standard Version at P!

Slow and Steady Wins the Race
Standard Bag ‘Kraft Carrier’ in Tobacco and White

Deluxe Standard Version (2012) by Slow and Steady Wins the Race takes over P! as part of Possibility 02: Growth. From December  12-22

Possibility 02: Growth
Aaron Gemmill × Katarzyna Krakowiak × Sarah Oppenheimer × Bec Brittain × Slow and Steady Wins the Race ×

Part V
Dec 12 – Dec 16, 2012

The fifth and penultimate part of Possibility 02: Growth features Deluxe Standard Version (2012) by Slow and Steady Wins the Race. Continuing the conceptual fashion label’s reinvention of retail, Deluxe Standard Version converts P! into a store. A checkerboard installation of plush cream carpeting takes over the space as a display for new additions to the signature Standard Bag collection. Created in Leather, Velvet, Exotics, and Japanese Satin, these bags transform a ubiquitous retail form into objects of desire.

Slow and Steady Wins the Race is a conceptual clothing and accessory line founded by Mary Ping. The label may be described as “a logical dissection of fashion” — an exploration of the basic elements of apparel. Subverting typical forms through unexpected materials and approaches, Slow and Steady Wins the Race focuses on the fundamentals of clothing while commenting on the anthropology of fashion.

Possibility 02: Growth speaks to the myth of unchecked expansion through varying modes of inhabitation. Over its six week duration, the exhibition will transform periodically, spurred by the ongoing accumulation of works by different participants. A microcosm for the outpacing rhythm of urban development, the arrival of each new work dislodges the previous ones and redefines the space. Possibility 02: Growth speculates on how displacement and cohabitation upset conventional models of exhibition and the social relations they reflect.

| SSWTR & Friends | Project Projects, P!, and the NYABF

P! is a new multidisciplinary exhibition space located in New York’s Chinatown. Founded by Prem Krishnamurthy, P! extends the curatorial, editorial, and publishing work of Project Projects and proposes an experimental space of display in which the radical possibilities of disparate disciplines, historical periods, and modes of production rub elbows. A free-wheeling combination of project space, commercial gallery, and Mom-and-Pop-Kunsthalle, P! engages with presentation strategies and models to emphasize rupture over tranquility, interference over mere coexistence, transparency over obfuscation, and passion over cool remove.

The inaugural exhibition, Process 01: Joy, opens in September 2012 and features a unique interaction of work by Chauncey Hare, Christine Hill, andKarel Martens. The space’s architectural concept, designed by Leong Leong Architecture, will premiere in this first show and evolve with each successive installation at P!.
