Wynde Dyer, "1751 Easy Street," 2011
PLACE revisits five shows in its glossy birds-eye atrium.
- Wynde Dyer's For Sale By Owner: 1751 Easy Street
, an excitingly large 1/2 scale model of her childhood home. Dyer built the replica on-site from memory
using traditional wooden lathe construction. She plans to torch the whole piece after the show closes.
- Rhoda London's and...
, an examination of myth and memory using artifacts and drawings. Harrison Higgs contributes a video of blurry "purgatorial space."
- Richard Schemmerer's Framed or Frame of Mind
, a grid of assemblages and peculiarly angled picture frames.
- Jane Schiffhauer's The Myth of Memory
, a multimedia installation about gender, power and personal narrative. Features a glass ladder (leading to an even peskier glass ceiling?!)
- Jamie Marie Waelchli's translations
, a video projection about the slow decline of words into gobbledygook. Cameo by Google Translate.
For the party, Jason King will also unveil PositionMax Beta
, a sculptural work involving new performance technology. A stealth apparatus "allows previously unmanageable positions to be held steadily by performers over long periods of time." The result? Still human forms with superhuman durability.
Edit: Upcoming Monday, artist talks with Wynde Dyer, Jane Schiffhauer and Jason King. PNCA professor Mary Preis moderates.
Closing reception and performance • 6-9pm • November 19
