Preview with Heidi Schwegler: Plane of Scattered Pasts
May 1 | 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Plane of Scattered Pasts, a two-artist exhibition featuring sculpture by Heidi Schwegler and video by Quayola, offers new ways of thinking about objects and their inexorable fragmentation. Works in this exhibition amend old or broken things by recasting and embellishing their materiality: their original state, whether ordinary or monumental, is reoriented in terms of aesthetic value.
Artist Heidi Schwegler, who will join us during the preview reception, now spends her time in Yucca Valley as co-founder of the Yucca Valley Material Lab. Formerly a long-time Portland resident, Schwegler was head of the MFA in Craft program jointly offered by PNCA and OCAC.
Quayola, based in London, uses video, computer software, and installation to explore the tension between the real and artificial, often drawing from monumental and historical works in his hometown of Rome, Italy. His work is included in this exhibition courtesy bitforms gallery, New York.
