Joe Grimm and Erica Moore: (non)Sense

@ What It Is

1155 S Lyman Ave, Oak Park, IL 60304

Opening Saturday, March 27th, from 3PM - 8PM

On view through Friday, April 23rd

The exhibition (non)Sense: Physicality, Perspective and the Consciousness of Relating will feature artwork by Joe Grimm and Erica Moore. These artists focus on the body and how and what it senses in space and time through installation artworks. Both Grimm and Moore use installation as a method of investigating the sense-able, the visible/invisible and the audible/inaudible. They question where we are, how we are, what exists and how we know it.

In Joe Grimm’s installation work he uses modified 16mm projectors, sans film and domestic standing fans to play with light, space, time, what one perceives and what actually exists. In two featured site-specific installations, Erica Moore, activates the preexisting architectural details using reflective materials. By using non-traditional hanging and installation methods, Moore plays with what happens when the viewer has to physically move their body to look at an artwork. Both artists play with physical presence, perspective, consciousness, and the relation we have to our surroundings.
