the event of a thread

Ann Hamilton is a visual artist internationally recognized for the sensory surrounds of her large-scale multi-media installations. Using time as process and material, her methods of making serve as an invocation of place, of collective voice, of communities past and of labor present. Noted for a dense accumulation of materials, her ephemeral environments create immersive experiences that poetically respond to the architectural presence and social history of their sites.

Alyson Shotz’s sculptures perk up a decades-old post-Minimalist idiom with a dash of pop science. Ms. Shotz evokes natural phenomena with accumulations of beads, pins and other common materials. She isn’t alone in this — Tara Donovan comes to mind — but her creations have a geekier, less arbitrary aspect. Often they respond to the challenge of visualizing concepts from theoretical physics[…]

Je porte une attention particulière à l’aspect fonctionnaliste de notre système d’organisation sociale en tant que modèle de société. Pour créer l’effet d’une tension entre ce qui est individuel et collectif, j’utilise des objets, mobilier et matériaux fonctionnels comme des indices de notre logique de vie. Mes installations, performances et objets questionnent des mouvements de masse (ex : prendre le métro) pour montrer du doigt notre société qui préfabrique et standardise nos désirs et nos besoins. Par l’accumulation, il se trame une matière première à partir de laquelle elle élabore des mises en scène minimalistes ou exubérantes qui questionnent nos moments collectifs (ex : pique-nique, mariage, réunion universitaire) tout en indiquant des préoccupations d’ordre politique et écologique.
