Opening Reception: Cat Tyc: Significant Otherness

Tanja Grunert is proud to present Significant Otherness, an inter-species collaboration by Cat Tyc and Agnes Tyc.

This is Agnes’s statement for the show:

My human Cat Tyc and I will be presenting the pilot episode of our podcast SIGNIFICANT OTHERNESS as a sound installation. My human wanted to give me this platform as a way to reciprocate for all the “emotional labor” I gave to her during quarantine. To build deeper communication during this time, we processed our lives together with the help of an animal communicator. I think she thinks too much but I do have to say I have enjoyed having this space to express my concerns for this troubling world. In this discussion, we give space for the somewhat hidden discussions around the pressures to mother on those who choose or choose not to, issues exacerbated by economic inequality, the failing US healthcare system, and pressing environmental concerns that push on views of futurity.

Also included in the exhibition will be two sculptures by me from known objects ie: dog toys because I am a firm believer in Walter Benjamin’s belief that ‘the production of ideas, of conceptions, of consciousness, is at first directly interwoven with the material activity and the material intercourse of men, the language of real life’.

THE ARTIST WILL NOT BE PRESENT in the space as I do not enjoy the company of many humans but MY human Cat Tyc will be available to speak on my behalf and answer any questions.

Please do not keep her out late. I worry.

— Agnes Tyc

Agnes Tyc is a medium age Chihuahua Whippet who was born in Tennessee but identifies as a New Yorker as she has lived most of her adult life in Brooklyn. She has been featured in Winnie Au’s CONE OF SHAME photo series which was featured in FOUR & SONS magazine and raised thousands of dollars for dogs in shelters.
