GALLERY ATTACHMENT November 1st, 2014 through November 30th, 2014 at 643 N Spring St Los Angeles, CA 90012 and As Builts at Jai and Jai Gallery 648 N Spring St Los Angeles, CA 90012 are one show with two parts by Laurel Consuelo Broughton and Andrew Kovacs.
GALLERY ATTACHMENT is an architectural intervention in the City of Los Angeles constructed out of the debris and discarded elements of the contemporary physical and cultural environment. Through the re-composition and de-saturation of these elements, Gallery Attachment re-calibrates everyday objects into new architectural potentials. The installation, invites viewers to mingle and explore the piece from the inside allowing for a seeing and re-seeing of the component’s characteristics and the construction of the whole. Gallery Attachment appropriates a parking lot as a landscape for play and contemplation.
Across the street is As Builts at Jai & Jai Gallery, a corresponding show that documents the individual parts of Gallery Attachment. While Gallery Attachment is conceived as a one-to-one construction, As Builts is a show of drawings and models. Broughton and Kovacs suggest that rather than simply viewing the contents of a gallery as material to be displayed and appreciated, this content is raw material that is yet to be assembled.

GALLERY ATTACHMENT is part of World Wide Storefront, a Storefront for Art and Architecture project. Additional support has been provided by the Los Angeles Forum for Architecture and Urban Design and The John Chase Memorial Fund.
