Gluck50 is pleased to present Spectacle, an exhibition of work by American artist Jamie Isenstein created both in residence at Gluck50 and at her studio in Brooklyn, New York. The word spectacle has two meanings in English that fall on opposite sides of the subject/object relationship. In one sense the word refers to a showy performance and in the other sense it is another word for eyeglasses. The first meaning demands to be watched, while the second meaning does the watching. For her exhibition at Gluck50, Isenstein plays on this double meaning to confuse subjects and objects by turning bodies into objects and objects into bodies. In doing this, Isenstein hopes to flip the power dynamic inherent in the subject/object relationship as a way to imagine giving agency and autonomy to the less powerful.
