> DESCRIPTION

Cross Cut, from Aili Schmeltz's Tomorrowland series, explores the idea that utopia can be considered not only a place or a goal, but also as the very act of striving for such a target. Schmeltz's hybridized structures are materializations, remnants of an ideal that never was and may never be. As fallen monuments to a utopic philosophy, they function as relics of both a "good place" and "no place." Part architectural, part fossil, part potential: these works utilize discarded building materials that appear to have crystallized within a 'natural' process - strata that have undergone philosophical transformation yet to be fulfilled.

Exhibition dates: November 2, 2013 - February 9, 2014.

The exhibition opens on Saturday, November 2nd, 7:00 - 10:00 PM. The main reception will take place on Saturday, December 7th, 7:00 -10:00 PM, during the Artist Village Art Walk (artist in attendance)
