Ok, Northview Gallery curator and artist Marie Watt has finally found a way
to get me all the way out to the PCC Sylvania campus. PORT's own Katherine Bovee and her evil genius husband Philippe Blanc have another show so Euro you might need to rename yourself Per and pay $5 a gallon for fuel to really see it properly. All kidding aside, they are two of the most promising artists around here
and I watch their development closely. You can see what I mean because there is an artist lecture & gallery reception Thursday, July 28, 2 pm for their legacy: boxed version
It sounds promising but will it be better than Savepoint, their previous show?
They had strong, sophisticated ideas but the visual vocabulary was a bit anonymous in that outing.
Here is their statement:
"Playing with the intersection between art history, technology and gaming
environments, legacy presents an idealized landscape fashioned out of simulated
computer parts. The work included in legacy continues our exploration of the
culture and vocabulary of computers by introducing computers as aesthetic objects,
while simultaneously transposing discourse surrounding contemporary art into
terms familiar to the computer user."
During the lecture, they will discuss the implications of presenting tech art
within a gallery space as well as several current, past and future projects.
