CITY OF THE SUN MODEL 1.2
STOrefront for art & architecture
souvenirs: new new york icons

16 SEPTEMBER - 9 DECEMBER, 2017.
Storefront for Art and Architecture | 97 Kenmare Street |  New York

 

Ultra de la Rue was invited to participate in the group show Souvenirs: New New York Icons, as part of the New Museums Ideas City New York. The exhibition challenges the symbols that have permeated the gift shop, Souvenirs presents critical approaches to the shifting and complex iconography of the city. The exhibition introduces new objects and, with them, new ways to relate to form, matter, affect, representation, and agency.

The spatial model designed by Ultra de la Rue, is a architectural representation for the neighborhoods Brownsville, East New York, and Canarsie. Respectively also the only three neighborhoods in Brooklyn that are not gentrifying. Brooklyn boasts many eye-catching buildings, but there are hardly any iconic architectural representations in these neighborhoods with predominantly project housing. To represent these predominantly African-American neighborhoods in the form of a souvenir, the sunsets at Canarsie Piers, the colorful street murals that are present to uplift the communities that reside there, and a place like the famous street basketball court the Hole in Brownsville, were taken as a starting point.

The two distinct sides of the souvenir represent an at times tough and inaccessible part of the city, but also the vibrancy of the people that life in an architectural wasteland, but who still are able to create culture that spreads beyond the confines of their neighborhood.

CITY OF THE SUN MODEL 1.1
METRO 54 PRESENTS
BLUEPRINT:
WHO's URBAN APPROPRIATION IS THIS?
A COLLABORATION EXHIBITION

1 JUNE - 27 AUGUST, 2017.
TENT | Witte de Withstraat 50  |  Rotterdam

 

CITY OF THE SUN MODEL 1.1

For the exhibition Innavisions and Afaina de Jong collaborated in the creation of City of the Sun. City of the Sun draws inspiration from the gateways to one of the oldest city in ancient Egypt: Iunu or Heliopolis to the Greeks. Beyond its gateway the city flourished as a seat of higher learning in philosophy and astronomy and was frequented by the likes of Homer, Plato and Phytagoras, amongst others. Heliopolis is now located in a northeastern suburb of Cairo. City of the Sun is a contemporary take on life in the city and especially Rotterdam; A grey and inaccessible city, but if you know the hidden doors a rich tapestry of urban cultures have thrived. The graphics are inspired by 70ties jazz, that originated in the urban centers of that time, and are deeply connected to the cosmos, space and afrofuturism. The art and architectural form of City of the Sun rejects Western minimalist tradition and fully embraces a 21th century maximalist style.

It is the time to release and reunite, it is a present to be celebrate, it is the Festival of Las Ánimas.

FOR THE PEOPLE BY THE PEOPLE
BY AFAINA DE JONG


For the People by the People is a visual story about how people influence change in the city. The collapse of faith in top-down planning has been followed by a renewed interest in the self-generating wisdom of bottom-up urban initiatives. What does it mean when people act as the urban change agents that direct the life and death of the world's cities? Fusing her photography with a manifesto-like text, architect Afaina de Jong marks the people in the streets as the starting point of all urban trends and cultural innovation. And calls upon us all to become architects of our environment.
