In Collections, Fanny Allié, Andrea Burgay, and Alison Owen bring together mixed media collages and sculpture made from materials collected around the city, each artist transforming their chosen materials in different ways: Allié's soft sculptures use single gloves found around the city; Owen's mixed media work uses the cast-offs from other artists’ practices--drop cloths, paint rags, and the scraps from collages--combines the accidental with the intentional; and Burgay's work combines collage, sculpture, and found materials to elevate the overlooked and the mundane via transformative physical processes.

Fanny Allié was born in Montpellier, South of France. In 2005, shortly after graduating from Ecole Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie (The National School of Photography) in Arles, France, she moved to New York City. Allié was selected for the Bronx Museum of the Arts' "Artist in the Marketplace" (AIM) program during 2006-07. Solo-exhibits of Allié's work have been organized by A.I.R Gallery, New York City Department of Parks & Recreation, Roger Smith Arts Space, chashama, and St Eustache Church in Paris, France. Her work has been featured in group exhibitions organized by Fresh Window Gallery, Freight + Volume Gallery, Field Projects, BRIC Rotunda Gallery, FIGMENT, Dekalb Gallery/Pratt Institute and The Bronx Arts Museum, among others and appeared in many publications including the New York Times, NY Magazine, Brooklyn Magazine, Hyperallergic, Le Monde Diplomatique, DNA Info, Marie Claire Italy, and Artspace Magazine. In June 2016, Allié showed her work during Art Basel for VOLTA 12 in Basel Switzerland with Fresh Window Gallery. Allié was awarded the 2015-16 AIR Gallery fellowship. She currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. In 2017, she will install her new interactive public sculpture "Exquisite Corpse" in collaboration with DOT in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn.
