Dr. Icchee and the Island:
A Faux Educational
by Robin Dann
October 16 – November 7, 2004
Saturday - October 16th
4:00 P.M. - 7::00 P.M.
In this faux educational exhibit, Dr. Icchee and the Island,
artist Robin Dann creates an installation that explores the romance
between Brooklyn's favorite native archeologist, Dr. Rebecca
Winston Icchee, and the island that caught her fancy.
Pedaii Island was discovered behind Staten Island in 1999. The cultural significance of Pedaii Island's astounding monolithic sculptures remains undetermined pending the findings of Dr. Icchee, who unfortunately disappeared along with the island in 2003.
Drawing from journal excerpts and sketches from the partial remains of Dr. Icchee's personal diary, found in a bottle floating off the coast of Tottenville, Dann creates paintings that evoke the psychological landscape of a fantastic archeologist.
