Producing Space features new site responsive works by Aaron Finnis, Cybele Lyle, Amy M. Ho, and Emma Spertus.
Spertus advertises a fictional sculpture exhibit in a work that simultaneously functions as blinds, covering the gallery window and door and creating darkness for Lyle and Ho's projected works within. Lyle contributes a video projection of a scene from nature onto the existing gallery architecture, while Ho projects video of a small scale model of an imagined space into the gallery skylights - blurring lines between outside and in, imagined and existing architecture, respectively. Finally, Finnis' work combines everyday, mass produced objects with the digital, referencing physical and virtual spaces of production that reflect and construct our social and cultural identity.
Three out of four of these artists share studio space in an Oakland studio, aptly named "Real, Time and Space," which was founded by Spertus. The artists first exhibited their work together in 2011 in a show at The Lab entitled, "A Floorless Room without Walls." Interface Gallery is pleased to bring their work together again for this exhibition.
