Join us at Pistachios to view Nicole Jacquard's solo exhibition 'Stories from Scotland'. Her enamel pieces are shown in front of greyscale backdrops in frames and have an augmented reality element; making these pieces a must see in-person! Meet Nicole and share light refreshments with us on Thursday May 4th from 4p – 7p at our River North location. We look forward to seeing you!
Nicole joins us for a solo exhibition featuring five pieces. Each piece is comprised of an enamel frame encompassing a laser etched piece of mica. This is then set forward in front of a graphic print so that the light passes through the mica and creates a moving story. Nicole uses augmented reality to tell a story through these pieces, allowing the user to use their phone to view videos and an entirely new perspective on her work.
