Defined Field

Defined Field // December 12th, 2016 - December 12th, 2026 // Sunrise - Sunset    

Defined Field is a multitude of site specific installations. The exhibition of each site will span over the course of one decade. The sites are comprised of preexisting elements: physical boundaries, spacial relationships, natural and manmade structures, landscapes, textures, smells, and inhabitants that are being re-contextualized. By assigning a conceptual boundary to the specific site, the site itself becomes the material of its own representation. Over the course of the exhibition each site will naturally evolve with time into new compositions. Once the exhibition period is over, the site will no longer exist in that context even if it may still exist.

 

 

"Defined Field posits a form of representation in which the landscape subject of the work and the work itself are physically inseparable. The work is differentiated by the artifice of process and intention. Documenting the contiguous and uninterrupted space around and across the liminal points of the installation, the artist erases the boundary between art as object of consideration and environment as external to the project of art. The subjects are chosen for considerations of historical context and personal significance. The environment and its dynamic features, waves, rocks, sand, textures, trees and shrubs, roadways, structures, animals, people and the relationships among all of its physical forms are the material for the representational installation as well as the subject of its representation. Auxiliary exhibits are planned to invite a viewing of process documentation.​"
