Madeleine Bailey: When the peaks of our sky come together, my house will have a roof
@ Terrain Exhibitions
704 Highland Ave; Oak Park, IL. 60304
Opening Sunday, June 2nd, from 1 PM - 4PM
On view through Sunday, June 23rd
Whether large and yawning or closed and secretive, windows offer themselves up as architectural instruments to gaze onto a world. Capturing gesture and mark, landscape and light, “When the peaks of our sky come together…” utilizes Terrain’s street-facing windows to display dislocated and fragmented images of the sky. Through the transference of skies, the installation celebrates suggested shifts in location, space, and time.
