In their upcoming exhibition at The Franklin, the artist collaborative of Petra Bachmaier and Sean Gallero, known as Luftwerk, will create a site-responsive mixed media installation.
Luftwerk will transform the outdoor gallery space, gangway, and the home façade of curators Edra Soto and Dan Sullivan into an immersive interplay of perspective, reflection and fragmentation. Thin contour mirror-like lines radiate on the house’s façade, reflecting fragments of the outside environment. Anamorphic lines of mylar create shapes and sights that re-adjust and bewilder the viewer’s sense of depth, space and perspective along the narrow walkway. A pair of extended and contracted mirror portals explode and fragment reflections within the interior of The Franklin gallery space as well as the surrounding exterior.
Into and Out of is an artistic observation, intervention and purposeful manipulation of perspective and space in the all-encompassing architecture of THE FRANKLIN, it’s home and the environment.
