Hannah Doerksen: I AM A HOLE IN WALLS OF BUILDINGS

July 21 - October 5, 2014

I AM A HOLE IN WALLS OF BUILDINGS is an installation which uses sculpture, light, kinetic devices, sound, and re-appropriated objects to create a framework for an emotional and reflective experience. Located in a highly visible yet inaccessible window space, the work depicts a variety of unremarkable yet familiar desires and failures and is absorbed in a contradictory and compulsory relationship with loss, longing, and loneliness.

Through physical and material mimicry, imitations of nature oscillate between authenticity and artificiality in a way that is never stabilized but delicately balanced. Handmade components take ownership of their imperfections, exposing the process with which they were made.
