Anonymous Gallery is extremely pleased to present its inaugural exhibition: an ambitious collaborative project and exhibition created by Eltono and MOMO – entitled PLAF – Autonomous Mechanisms. Plaf is a word for splash in both Spanish and French and relates to the on-going project, featuring kinetic sculptures that have been placed and fastened at several locations in the New York Waterways. Constructed from recycled materials, the work will be left vulnerable to the elements as a way to explore the force and power of water that goes unused and unnoticed in New York City. Using the rivers water, wind, tides, and currents, the sculptures will shift and decay, leaving the work just as it is without comment on form or representation. September 8th, Anonymous Gallery will be providing an information booth and map created by the artists. The public can then find the on-going outdoor artwork and enjoy the environment in which it is presented. This information will be available during business hours and online at

Throughout the month of September, Eltono and MOMO will also be constructing an indoor exhibition that reflects the work and progress outdoors. While their project is primarily ephemeral, the indoor exhibition will serve to document and preserve their research, ideas, model making and related art. Every three to five days, Eltono and MOMO will install new work that includes silkscreen prints, video, collage, painting, and sculpture. The on-going exhibition, along with the map and information will be available to the public from September 8th until October 10th and will be celebrated with a public exhibition opening on September 25th from 6-9pm.
