It was spectacular. LACMA didn&rsquo;t have such a space for the show, so we designed one. I hope to at least give the art its individual space and let the architecture help reveal the dynamism of each piece.&rdquo;</p></em><br /><br /><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd"> <html><head><meta></head></html> http://archinect.com/news/article/82774294/artist-jay-senetchko-builds-full-scale-farmhouse-as-an-extension-of-his-paintings-show-opens-tomorrow-in-vancouver Artist Jay Senetchko builds full-scale farmhouse as an extension of his paintings; show opens tomorrow in Vancouver Justine Testado 2013-09-26T20:23:00-04:00 >2013-09-30T18:05:28-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/qb/qbrcsy0h22ml29kn.jpg" width="514" height="386" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> "Industry and the Sleepwatchers" by artist Jay Senetchko from Vancouver, BC is a three-part art installation based on a poignant narrative of paintings that re-imagines the everyday lives of the artist's paternal grandmother Ann Senetchko and her husband Pete Senetchko, who was involved in the Alberta oil patch as a tool-pusher. The opening reception will be this Friday, Sept. 27 from 7-10 pm at an open space at a local Sole Foods Street Farm, an organization that transforms vacant land into fruitful working farms in Vancouver.<br><br><img alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/6l/6lqpcpfyit4hpu29.jpg" title=""><br><br><img alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/r6/r60fvru423fdcecv.jpg" title=""></p> <p> Taking place in a life-size prairie farmhouse the artist constructed just two weeks earlier this month, the story behind this installation examines the positive and negative aspects of how the oil and gas industry affect domestic life--two elements the artist describes as "definitive of contemporary reality."

It is because the exhibition and ongoing research project <a href="http://www.clipstampfold.org/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Clip/Stamp/Fold</a> has landed in the south hemisphere by this month until July 2013. Santiago has had the chance for this first landing. The local version of the project became real due to the remarkable work of Fernando Portal, Pablo Brugnoli and Andrea Lathrop, whom gave shape to the Chilean participation on the architectural radical magazines of the 60&rsquo;s and 70&rsquo;s.</p> <p> The selected local magazines were proposed according to the main outline: &ldquo;radical architecture of little magazines&rdquo;.
