Terrain Exhibitions Deborah Roberts: Hoes’ be Hoes
704 Highland Ave. Oak Park, IL
“Hoes be Hoes” explores what it is like for a woman to be seen as a sexual commodity rather than a valuable member of society, as common place, yet dangerous. Each “hoe” has it’s own history revealed by multiple layers, double meanings and symbols.
Deborah Roberts lives and works in Austin, Texas. She is a Recipient of the Ginsberg- Klaus Award Fellowship, Presidential Point of Light Award and the Syracuse University Graduate Fellow Award. Currently her work can be seen at The Drawing Center Viewing Program New York, NY, and Art Palace Gallery Houston, TX.
Terrain South Josh Garber : In Their Clothes
Terrain South 710 Highland Ave. Oak Park, IL
“In their clothes” explores a hybrid relationship between nature and the detritus of technology. The ubiquitousness of plastic in our daily lives leaves a toxic debris which can be almost mitigated by the seductive, uneasy beauty that it creates. Using tree branches and shrink wrap, the structure of this installation merges rhizomatic and anthropomorphic forms. It evokes traces of consumerism intertwined with the natural world, inviting the genetic possibility that nature’s limbs can be synthetically “clothed”.
Josh Garber works and lives and Chicago. He is a recipient of a Pollock-Krasner Grant, a Canada Council B Grant and has completed public commissions in Phoenix, Chicago and Cincinnati. Garber has participated in the Kohler and Sculpture Space residencies and has exhibited at Mercer Union in Toronto and Optica in Montreal. Currently, he is represented by Zolla/Lieberman Gallery in Chicago, IL.
