Tirtzah Bassel presents “I Want to Hold You Close,” an installation for Open Source Gallery.
In a culture where we are increasingly watching and being watched, Bassel is interested in how we perform. Using the rapt audience of a TED Talk as subject, “I Want to Hold You Close” is an immersive installation centered on a large-scale oil painting of a crowd, effectively placing the viewer on stage. As the viewer confronts the specificity and humanity of each individual’s existence within the audience, unique identities begin to stand out against the crowd.
Bassel explores the tension between anonymity and individuality, highlighting the desire for closeness and recognition that often drives our performances in real and virtual encounters. Inspired by work such as Marlene Dumas’ “Chlorosis” and the Terracotta Warriors of Xi’an, China, Bassel uses the traditional genre of portraiture in conjunction with the obscurity of a crowd to allow a sense of intimacy to unfold, even within the monumental scale of her painting. Her expressive brush strokes and vivid colors bring attention to subtle details of expression and body language. The all-encompassing installation is an invitation to slow down and spend a contemplative moment in the space.
Tirtzah Bassel is an Israeli artist based in New York. Her drawings, paintings, and site-responsive duct tape installations explore the permeable borders separating public and private domains, specifically in airport security zones, border crossings, and public transportation. Tirtzah has exhibited her work nationally and internationally with recent installations created on site in Harlem, New York, and El Paso, Texas. Tirtzah studied drawing and painting at the Jerusalem Studio School in Israel and she earned her MFA from Boston University. She is assistant director of the Brandeis Institute of Music and Art and is the recipient of the 2011-2012 LABA Artist Fellowship. Her work has been reviewed in Hyperallergic, Huffington Post, Arts in Bushwick, The Forward, and The Boston Globe. Tirtzah is represented by Slag Gallery in New York and is a studio artist in the Chashama Workspace Program in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.

Jasmine Murrell presents “Some Impossibility Without A Name,” an installation for Open Source Gallery.
How can we begin again at the end? Where is the beginning of nothingness? Where is the end of our illusions dressed as mass media and 24-hour TV? How bad did it hurt before – or are we just moving in waves? “Some Impossibility Without A Name” is inspired by the undercurrent that holds us all, the substance older than thought, the elements we are made of and will eventually return to.
Murrell manipulates and transforms iconic materials to create alternate forms, constructing new objects, spaces, and realities that reflect our phenomenal way of life. She reframes historic associations that we may have with materials and objects to revisit the past while re-inventing the present. Murrell’s work reminds us of the events and history behind us, as well as the unknowable future that lies ahead. Humanity is constantly shifting and transforming – creating, remembering, forgetting. While it is easily obscured by the commotion of our daily lives, we are all a part of a much larger narrative than what we can see, connected throughout space and time. “Some Impossibility Without A Name” discovers the indefinable, yet palpable, ways in which trauma manifests and dissolves itself in our memories and histories.
Jasmine Murrell is a New York-based interdisciplinary artist. She received her BFA from the Parsons School of Design and her MFA from Hunter College. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally over the past decade in exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts, Bronx Museum of the Arts, African-American Museum of Art, Art Basel, and the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit. Her work has also been published in the New York Times, Amsterdam News, NY1 News, and the Detroit News. She is also a member of the artist collective HOWDOYOUSAYYAMINAFRICAN?, which will be exhibiting at the Rotterdam Museum this spring.
