Processions: an Elaborative Cartography

Team Appendix Project Space takes show on the road

By Lisa Radon October 22, 2009


Bustin’ out of the NE Alberta garage-at-the-end-of-the-alley, the team behind Appendix Project Space opens its first collaborative installation on the road, specifically at Recess Gallery at Shattuck Hall, PSU (1914 SW Park Avenue) on Friday, October 23.

Processions: an Elaborative Cartography is "a fifty foot outdoor fiber installation and an indoor suite of drawings, objects and strung work." Maggie Casey, Zachary Davis, Joshua Pavlacky and Benjamin Young envision it as, "the first project of our yet-to-be named collective and studio," which is all to the good because individually they all make interesting work. Head over to the artists’ talk at 4 PM in the Shattuck Hall Annex with a reception to follow at 5 PM on the Shattuck Hall Terrace (they say the piece is best viewed as day becomes night.

"Navigating the topology of the individual, the group, and emergent form, the exhibition is an exploration of process and its structure. Processions is an ecology of making. Composed of a series of hung arcs, each informed by its companion, the resulting structure exists as a material pause in an evolution of possible choices."
