Genesis Belanger: ‘Holding Pattern’ on view at the @newmuseum

NYC based artist Genesis Belanger’s new installation “Holding Pattern” is now on view as a Storefront Window Installation at the New Museum. Her work is often described as surrealist but with a sense of humor. The pale colors and the smooth, languid shapes of her pieces are truly captivating; her renditions of droopy and dreamy everyday objects are definitely worth a look.

Belanger’s objects invoke this liminality, often appearing limp or wilting as if they have been left in place for a long time or melted under high heat. Viewers peer through the window onto a receptionist’s desk adorned with office supplies and an uneaten lunch, while an open desk drawer reveals items one might consume in order to cope with the stresses of daily life such as candy, a bottle of liquor, and pill packets. A low bench with two grinning lamps awaits possible visitors and a color-paneled curtain punctuates the threshold between the windows, separating the space of waiting from that of anticipation. Ceramic bricks wrapped daintily with notes are scattered throughout the installation, perhaps waiting to be pitched through a window allowing those trapped in purgatory to break free.

“Genesis Belanger: Holding Pattern” joins a new series of Storefront Window installations that relaunches a program the New Museum originally mounted in the 1980s.
