For All Things Project’s very special exhibition during September- October 2011, we will be posting mainly on

Meanwhile, here are two thought-provoking quotes found in Andy Merrifield’s 2006 book, Henri Lefebvre: A Critical Introduction . .

“The space that homogenizes has nothing homogeneous about it.” (Henri Lefebvre, La production de l’espace / The Production of Space,1970)

“When scholars write about emancipation, about reclaiming space for others, we might start by emancipating ourselves and reclaiming our work space . . . Yet before imagination can seize power, some imagination is needed: imagination to free our minds and our bodies, to liberate our ideas, and to reclaim society as a lived project. That, it seems to me, is what the production of differential space is really all about. It’s a project that can begin this afternoon.” (Andy Merrifield, Henri Lefebvre: A Critical Introduction, 2006)

ALL THINGS PROJECT is pleased to work with Berlin-based artist JENS REULECKE to realize and present a six-week collaborative series and exhibition using the storefront church as just one starting point. The planned activities, both migratory and discrete, anticipate topics from Henri Lefebvre’s classic book by the same name; this manifestation includes collaborators from such disciplines as video and sound, experimental dance, and ruminates upon present controversies in urbanism, religious belief, sociology, and cultural studies.

Following an entrancing performance in 2007 at East Houston’s Le Petit Versailles, Reulecke was interested in embarking on an even richer, more collaborative enterprise, again in New York. Reulecke writes: “I am bringing people together. Artists and participants gather experiences while interacting with one another. Our platform is New York City. Entering public space activates our imagination to the point where transformation occurs, resulting in spaces of opportunities. Sharing these realities with the public inside and outside the gallery allows each person to receive unique perspectives, born right out of our known life with its various realities . . . As in my recent sculpture, a tower assembled of architectural elements unfolds and carries a person further up and inside. A transformation implementing a shift from monumental images to luminescent shapes.” More on artist at:
In addition to its physical expression, JENS REULECKE: PRODUCTION OF SPACE also performs with a blog at allowing for expanding updates and an online, open exchange.

JENS REULECKE: PRODUCTION OF SPACE is the third full-length exhibition presented by ALL THINGS PROJECT in 2011, now the third year for the gallery organized by curator Samuel W. Kho. The curatorial appointment is made possible by a generous grant from the Mustard Seed Foundation, matched by individual gifts. All Things Project and its gallery are part of the Neighborhood Church of Greenwich Village (NCGV), a house of worship that supports cutting-edge visual practices, thoughtful lectures, as well as music and spoken word performances.
