The exhibition MY NEW YORK MAP shows Justesen’s method of approaching her work as an artist. A method relying on the sculptor’s housewife practice of making use of existing conditions for work and production. It is essentially about using what is readily to hand. Making the surroundings work for you; turning the existing conditions into an extended l and integral part of the work.
Like at a residency in NYC.
A scene of galleries, studios, and venues frequented by Justesen during her stay. Noting down on paper what she heard and saw: MY NEW YORK MAP.
The city has been mapped like a diary entry on the scrap of a paper roll accidentally left in the studio.
Special bonus - You might catch a glimpse of the artist herself while moving around the exhibition.
