EXHIBITION:

THE UNKNOWN Exhibition will run April 27 – May 25, 2013

Gallery Hours: Wednesday – Saturday 11 am – 4 pm

In an international group exhibition, SPACE 4 ART presents contemporary artwork that addresses themes concerning the unknown, the occult, and the metaphysical. The artists selected are representative of visual art’s ability to speak about and create experiences of the extraordinary for the viewer, of realms of unknowing, the ritualistic, and conjuration.

By reimagining the unknown, the artists in this exhibition strive to make the invisible concrete in their various modes of production: through video, sculpture, collage, and texts. But the materials and imagery used surpass their everyday lives and are forced to behave in unexpected ways. A forest becomes a site of unresolved terror, collages become maps for rituals, plaster figurines harbor “haunted dirt,” hidden light creates shifts in perception, video montage and cloud computing become a vessel for paranormal disruption, and finally, “erratic events” are “fixed” in place in the form of translucent sculptural waves.
