BRIAN GOGGIN DEFENESTRATION

source: metaphormorg

Through a versatile use of materials, an intuitively driven research process, and creative visioning, I work to create artwork that poetically morphs expected notions of how we perceive and interact with our everyday environment. The work explores contemporary discoveries in the field of consciousness, and adds to a developing artistic mythology. My work grows out of the context of site-specific sculpture installation, the environment, world vernacular architecture, literature, science and philosophy. I manifest the artwork in a process that often involves teams of people including those outside of the studio, museum and gallery spaces including for example collaborations with city planners, philosophers, scientists and architects. The resulting pieces develop an identity and attain an often previously unimagined history, and wondrously nestle into the site, offering the opportunity for aesthetic arrest.

Brian Goggin, an artist of infinite sculptural jest, has left his mark on the West Coast with his whimsical and vibrant layering of found objects and chaos-provoking sculptures. Goggin is a multi disciplinary artist who has created an interaction with the landscape that surpasses the physical limitations of traditional framed painting and free standing sculpture. Goggin has been creating sculpture, public artwork, and museum and gallery installations utilizing non-traditional locations and varied materials. He first attracted national attention in 1997 with Defenestration —an NEA funded site-specific sculptural mural on a dilapidated building in San Francisco. “Defenestration”, with its grandfather clock, tables, chairs and couches suspended in flight from the building’s windows, has become an unofficial San Francisco landmark.

Brian Goggin é um artista multidisciplinar que criou uma interação com a paisagem que supera as limitações físicas da pintura e da escultura. Suas instalações utilizam locais não tradicionais e materiais variados. “A linguagem dos pássaros”, por exemplo, suspende livros abertos com ligações posicionadas para simular as asas dos pássaros em vôo. Anexado ao postes de luz por cabos de aço fino, esses livros parecem estar voando sobre a praça. À noite, os livros funcionam como faróis flutuando por energia solar interna. Palavras, tiradas de livros ou escritas por moradores da comunidade, são espalhados e incorporados à praça, como se as palavras caíssem a partir das páginas.
