David Harper: The Albatross

@ Swimming Pool Project Space

2858 W Montrose, Chicago, IL 60618

Opening Saturday, October 30th, from 5PM - 9PM

On view through Sunday, November 28th

In The Albatross exhibition, David Harper examines some of the objects/ crafts and ideas often associated with the burden of being separated from the ones you love. The Albatross is used in literature and folklore to illustrate a great encumbrance at sea, the separation of the sailor from the people they long for. The objects in this installation, absolved of their function, act as reminders to the viewer that an object made for memorial can often act stronger than the actual function of the object.
