Fiber Structure
Jan 25 - Dec 14 2019 - 119 days left
A site-specific installation by Mik Gaspay, May Gaspay, and Malleva Abenes. For Fiber Structure, Gaspay looked to the Beaux-Arts architecture of the War Memorial Buildings as a starting point. Using elements of the building’s architecture and, more specifically, its façade, Fiber Structure examines how hierarchies play out in space, from the grand entrances to utilitarian interstices. For this installation, Gaspay collaborated with his mother, May Gaspay and family friend Malleva Abenes to translate the columns, archways, and facades of the War Memorial in quilted fabric, disarming their monumentality and quietly examining their coded language. Opening Reception: Fri, Jan 25, 6-8pm.
