Stephen Talasnik 
Passage
February 12th - May 2nd, 2021




Court Tree Collective and Collision Projects proudly present Passage a site specific sculpture by Stephen Talasnik. Having regularly exhibited both domestically and abroad, Passage is his first New York City ephemeral installation in over a decade.

Stephen Talasnik’s work is informed by organic engineering and architecture. His three dimensional works are linear extensions of drawing; his primary studio pursuit since leaving Grad School in Rome, Italy.

Although formally trained in Fine Arts at RISD his works are inspired by building; whether with pencil line or wooden dowel. The seamless narrative between structure and void is the result of organic assembly and variable repetition. He uses no mathematics or computer program in measurement, instead relying only on instinct. Everything is built by hand; a desire of Talasnik to demonstrate the ability to create without a mechanical crutch.

The structures are improvisational; no preliminary plan, no advance knowledge of the journey. He has no idea where the process will take him and in that sense, both drawings and sculpture have a sense of the complete but unfinished. By remaining unfinished, the viewer is compelled to participate in the act of completion.



Axel Schmidt
Lost (Online Exclusive)
March 18 – May 20, 2021




Court Tree Collective presents Lost by environmental photographer Axel Schmidt. In the series Lost, both the image and audio are taken at the exact same instance. Capturing both fleeting elements in time. Installed in the streets, challenges the viewer to get back into nature.

Axel Schmidt was born in Essen, Germany in 1962. He studied at the Fachhochschule Bielefeld under Karl Martin Holzhäuser and Gottfried Jäger. In addition to his artistic work, he works as an advertising and architecture photographer. In 2018, he was honored with the illustrated book "Pilze, Eine Gallerie" which was selected as one of the 25 most beautiful German books by the Buchkunst Foundation Frankfurt.

In his series Lost, the subjects are fleeting and barely recognizable. The intention is to create space within our memories to allow our own voyeuristic experience to take shape. The accompanied soundscapes are recorded directly from the scenes in the picture. This serves as the only clue to the viewer experience. The combination creates an imaginary journey into the past. These exact moments are fleeting.

He currently lives and works near Düsseldorf and in Switzerland.
