> DESCRIPTION

In her largest and most comprehensive exhibition to date, Christine Tarkowski continues to analyze the systems of belief that pervade and shape our lives.  From large-scale cast iron sculptures that examine the ascent and descent of the automobile to modest etchings of satellites in orbit, her recent work highlights rituals performed in a void.  Tarkowski even constructs her own faith-based system for non-existent congregants with a concrete geodesic dome serving as a place of worship and an alt-gospel soundtrack by Jon Langford.
