February 27, 2008 – April 26, 2008
Opening Reception: 26 February 2008, 6-8 pm followed by a video screening curated by ART OFFICE and Slab Screening from 8-9 pm.
Wendy Mason and Mindy Rose Schwartz explore their mutual interest in how objects and spaces hold the history of human interactions and the physical and ephemeral traces of their use.
Using macramé as an intervention device, Schwartz will unearth objects found within LACE and LACE’S archive, binding a hybrid of forms to the architecture. Mason will show a video of a plywood octagon that colors the air in a room while also being unhinged from the physicality of its location. Both works acknowledge the unseen as integral to fully understanding a place as a whole.
Together their work, as the title suggests, points to a fullness that occurs inside of a space that extends beyond the structure of what is meant to contain it. The natural organization of objects and meaning is changed when what is normally hidden is revealed.
Overlooker is part of Street Address, an ongoing storefront series at LACE that offers a 24/7 art experience to Hollywood Boulevard passersby.
