Reception and Artist Talk: Thursday October 13, 6:30pm
Artist talk in Recital Hall. Reception to follow in the gallery.
Artist team Walczak & Heiss make work that responds to the unique characteristics of a particular place. In SHAKER, a magical yet seldom seen nut-harvesting machine becomes a sculptural form in the gallery. As visitors walk through the space, the machine is at first unrecognizable, perversely distorted through digital manipulation. Yet, from one singular vantage point the piece pulls into focus. In this spot, perception and function collapse as the shaker defies its grand scale to crack a single nut.
