Heather Harvey, Solid Objects and The Wandering Clew, 2012- 2014 ongoing, 150+ pieces with more added as the walk continues, Dimensions variable
Opening Reception and Artist Talk: Friday, October 16, 7 – 9 p.m. Heather Harvey presents a site-specific work made with gleanings from daily walks. The found fragments stretch along the wall of the gallery suggesting a cryptic diagram, a map or an unfolding journey. Clustering, dispersing and re-ordering, they resonate with possible histories, meanings and value. Drawing on the minutiae of lived experience, hidden infrastructures and invisible ordering mechanisms-things like gravity, quantum physics, and radio waves, but also the human body, memory and contradictory emotions, Harvey explores subtle philosophical, phenomenological and material issues.
