/rive collective presents Anamorphosis, an installation for Open Source Gallery.

Anamorphosis is a spatial and relational exploration of what makes and defines a neighborhood, set in, and inspired by, the area surrounding the Open Source Gallery. The exhibit’s video and photo installations seek to collectively make visible the physical and social lines that demarcate and connect a community. Through site-specific and mobile media projects that encourage residents to reflect upon their neighborhood and share their stories, /rive seeks to highlight the relationships between public space, mobile technology and local or microhistories.

In Horizon Lines, Annie Berman and Samara Smith uncover the edges that mark the neighborhood’s undefined and immutable borders. By visually exploring lines of demarcation, Berman and Smith investigate the areas where neighborhood life meets neighborhood boundaries. In Convergence Lines, Samara Smith and A.E. Souzis outline the area’s social connections by mapping photographs sourced from the neighborhood’s residents. Visitors to the exhibit and residents will be invited to submit photographs via text throughout the month of January. When the images are collected and exhibited, they will create a more complete portrait of the surrounding communities, offering a glimpse into the many individual narratives that exist within the neighborhood.

/rive is a Brooklyn-based artist collective focused on site-specific, locative projects that meet at the intersection of psychogeography, locative media and documentary narrative. Most projects are set in, and explore, urban public spaces. Inspired by social practice, /rive embraces collaborative and participatory methodologies, blurring the boundaries between maker, subject and audience. Members Annie Berman, Samara Smith and A.E. Souzis have exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, Queens Museum, Anthology Film Archives, New York Film Festival, Hammer Museum, Art in Odd Places and beyond.
