Dylan Gauthier is a Brooklyn-based artist who works through a research-based and collaborative practice centered on experiences of nature, architecture, landscape, and social change in a time of ecological crisis. Gauthier is a founder of the boat-building and eco-art publishing collective Mare Liberum and of the Sunview Luncheonette, a co-op for art, politics, and communalism in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. His individual and collective projects have been exhibited at the Centre Pompidou, Musée national d’art moderne (Paris), Parrish Art Museum, CCVA at Harvard University (Cambridge), the 2016 Biennial de Paris (Beirut), the Center for Architecture (New York), The International Studio and Curatorial Program (NY), EFA Project Space, and other venues in the US and abroad.  His writings about art and public space have been published by Contemporary Art Stavanger, Parrish Art Museum, Urban Omnibus, Art in Odd Places, and Routledge/Public Art Dialogue, among others. In 2015 he was the NEA-supported Ecological Artist-in-Residence at the International Studio and Curatorial Program (ISCP); in 2016 he was a Socrates Sculpture Park Emerging Artist Fellow (NY), and this year he is the inaugural Artist-in-Residence at the Brandywine River Conservancy and Museum of Art, where his solo project highwatermarks is on view from October 2017 to January 2018. He co-curated (with Kendra Sullivan) the exhibition Resistance After Nature at Haverford College in spring of 2017. Gauthier received his MFA in Integrated Media Arts from Hunter College, CUNY (‘12), and teaches courses on emerging media and expanded cinema in the Department of Film and Media Studies at Hunter College, and ecological design in the School of Design Studies at Parsons/The New School.

Narrative

As an artist, educator, and organizer, my practice bridges video, sound, publication and sculpture, inviting collaborations with the public and with other artists and thinkers working in the public realm. Thematically, my work explores openings in the built environment and examines our relationship to ecology through technology, producing new interactions with overlooked or neglected spaces, and creating new architectures of desire. Drawing on the architectural practices of Lebbeus Woods, Frederick Kiesler, the Anarchitecture Group, and Vito Acconci (with whom I studied at Brooklyn College), among others, my work functions as intervention in and disruption of the limitations placed on social behaviors by both the infrastructures and the strictures of the built environment, and investigates the work of the artist as cultural producer alongside such paradigms as open source, citizen science, and the sharing economy.

My primary focus is on expanded forms of sculpture and architecture (nomadic, temporary, social) and collective practices that support open culture, mutual aid, and utopian visioning.  I am influenced by aesthetic materials that also function as social activators; that disrupt assumptions about art by sometimes having a ‘use’ and a ‘purpose’ beyond their exchange value; that through collaboration, research, and sense-based practices advocate for a more just and intuitive world, affect policy, and create social change; that invite us to occupy or inhabit spaces (literal and metaphorical) that once were off-limits or out-of-bounds. Collaboration with other artists has been a central component of my practice, beginning with my background in experimental theater in Northern California and in New York City in the early 2000s.  Since then, I have worked with the Sam Gould as a collaborator on Red76 and as a frequent contributor to museum projects and the occasional publication Journal of Radical Shimming. I also collaborate extensively with my wife and partner, the artist and poet Kendra Sullivan, with whom I co-founded the Sunview Luncheonette, a social club, art and community space in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, and with our artist/boatbuilding collective Mare Liberum, which I co-founded in 2007.

Mare Liberum utilizes old and new media channels to engage the public in a discussion around the uses of the city’s waterways and address water-based environmental crises. We have created artistic work in the form of hand­crafted, human-­propelled boats, modeled after historic boat shapes.  Each boat the collective designs, builds, documents, and propagates through print and online publications, functions as an expanded social practice – a sculpture that creates a new public around the fabrication of a functional art object.  Most recently, we led a group of climate justice activists down 160 miles of the Hudson River for SeaChange (2014), and turned Le Corbusier’s Carpenter Center into a fountain as part of the exhibition Mare Liberum: or, The Other Island at the Carpenter Center for Visual Arts in 2015.

In a similar mode, I have organized projects to connect farms to urban food deserts (Green my Bodega, 2009), harness underutilized urban spaces as a temporary public sphere (the Empty Vessel Project, 2005; Floating Academy at the Walker Art Center, 2009; SeaWorthy, 2011; SeaChange, 2014; Or, the Other Island, 2015) and promote equality by giving voice to underrepresented regional histories (the ACLU Mississippi Oral History Video Archive, 2010; Fortune Society Video with Center for Urban Pedagogy, 2010, Southern Writers Reading Room in Jackson, Mississippi, 2010, and Kosovo Reading Room in Kosovo and New York City, 2012).  I am interested in artistic production as a form of specialized research, and in the license given to artists to explore, adventure, document and question the world and our place within it.

In 2016-2017 I worked on creating a body of work around electromagnetic fields and water ecology of the Flushing Creek in Queens for a project to be included in the exhibition chance ecologies at the Queens Museum in the fall, 2016.  What Wilderness: Archive, is an artist book, website, and exhibition/performance project that makes use of the Newtown Creek, an EPA Superfund site in New York City, as a reflection on issues particular to ecological crises in the Anthropocene. The project is also a toolkit that demonstrates how we as artists can begin to depict such ecologically precarious zones – public, active, and deeply damaged – and asks, “With what language?”  The project is an evolution of the project What Wilderness: 9 Conversations on Ecology, Abstraction and the Anthropocene and invites works and contributions by the projector’s original contributors/collaborators.

In 2015/16, while in residence at the International Studio and Curatorial Program (ISCP), I built a small boat out of plywood and equipped it with sampling and recording devices to explore the edges, depths and surface of an EPA Superfund site, the Newtown Creek. The devices included an underwater LIDAR imager, cameras and hydrophones, and a radio transmitter to stream data and audio back to shore. For a month, I invited a guest to accompany me on the water each day at 7 am, to speak with me about ecology and representation in relation to their work and the surrounding “post-natural” wilderness. We discussed nature, abstraction, community, the idea of wilderness, ecocriticism, as well as our personal stake as artists and concerned citizens in the future of Newtown Creek. As a site of ecological crisis, the Newtown Creek stood in for other compromised wilderness sites, from Chernobyl to Hanford to the Gulf, and allowed for reflection on the broader crises through which we are currently living. The project also investigated the problem of representation and communication of these crises: how do we depict, record, broadcast, and otherwise represent such toxic places without falling into the patterns of aestheticization or normalization which compromise our understanding of the complexity and severity of these localized ecological disasters?  Among my interlocutors were: the scholar Una Chaudhuri, environmental artists Brie Ruais, Aviva Rahmani, Marina Zurkow, Mary Walling Blackburn, Ellie Irons, and Christopher Kennedy, Newtown Creek Alliance organizer Willis Elkins, community organizer and publisher Sam Gould, poet Maureen McLane, Freshkills Park curator Mariel Villére, and activist and organizer Mark Read.

The combined knowledge base of these experts, artists, scholars, organizers, and writers was recorded in snippets that will, themselves, open up many new conversations and questions about what we can do, as artists, creators, and citizens.  These interviews became part of a single channel video installation (What Wilderness: 9 Conversations on Ecology, Abstraction, and the Anthropocene) combining field recordings and audio from the interviews, which was shown in International Studio and Curatorial Program’s exhibition and publication Aqueous Earth (curated and edited by Kari Conte) in 2016.
