I found myself returning to a few of the pieces that I saw, but haven't been able to return to the gallery yet to sit with them... or take notes about who created them! The fizzing interactive piece in the staff show became more interesting each time I interacted with it. The sound was better/sharper when the gallery was empty... it became sort of meditative.
Question for artist: How would you set this up if it was presented in a large, high-volume setting like the Walker Art Center?
There was a video piece with an owl and other symbolic images that really grabbed me... reminded me of a show I saw in NYC of Finnish artists. Stark, dreamy, cool-toned palette.
Question for artist: Is there a narrative element to your work, or is it a loosely-linked series of symbols?
Finally, the hyper-realistic drawing in the Quarter Gallery that has a Kafka reference was wholly disturbing, and appeals to my dark humor. I'd love to see more of that artist's work.
Question to artist: Did you intend the Kafka reference to be an inside joke for those that have read the work you reference? Would you consider including a brief summary of this on the label for your work, or is it irrelevant?
