Whitney Huber’s work combines her interests in conceptualism, minimalism, and phenomenology. Autobiographical, feminist and surrealist, her performative work is symbolically emotive and personally revealing.
Rymplecloth, consisting of sheer fabrics, plays with visual perception and acts as a metaphor for both clarity and obscurity. Rymplecloth is the name for cheesecloth that is primarily used as a rag for polishing. Intrigued by its simplicity and evocation of labor, the cloth in this installation will drape, float and hover above the garden, subject to the whims of weather.
