I really don’t feel good vibrations any more – lately there is a constant hum that follows me around. A type of tenacious white noise, that is a constant murmur – sounds coming either from mechanical devices (HVAC, traffic, the laptop which I’m writing this on, the vibrating cell phones, etc.) or the ever present information from various media sources. These hums, noises and vibrations occupy the physical & (the head) space – there isn’t a space where I’m in presence of or responding to these vibrations.
The hums have been that of a distant cheer in the background, followed by disgust, followed by falling debris, followed by rattling, followed by cries and
then the distant sound of waves: it is indeed a swallowing moment.
Opening Reception: Oct 1st 6-9pm
Exhibition Dates: Oct 1st – Oct 30th
Artist Talk/Panel: Oct 9th @ 1pm
A* conceptual contractor – moving from one project to the next – as the space, the idea and the work is constantly negotiated.
Previous solo projects includes, Presence’ Tense – A site-induced installation with modular concrete pillars at Twelve Gates Art Center, Philadelphia in 2014 and Hidden Noise – a solo site specific installation at The Mission in Chicago. Including oddball outdoor curation such as A* Haul, and Lawn Gallery*.
Currently watching the evaporation line of POND HOLE – A* hole in my backyard, full of water, which is the first submersible conceptual art gallery in Chicago.
Curated by Mary Wells
