Save Event: Catch As Catch Can

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:



Using whatever materials and methods are available, as a system. All the while attempting to embrace the Monumental, for the first time. These efforts result in a variety of sculptures made out of stainless steel, spray painted metal, plastic, canvas, leather, walnuts, chrome plated steel, rope, concrete, laminated wood, a Maroccan rug and other found objects. Harvesting simplified forms, with new ambitions. An exhibition constructed around the architecture of a cultured landscape. Where the gallery functions as a public square, an interior for the great outdoors. Working within this confined court leaves room for sidesteps, detours, and some repetition. Get a grip on. Grasp. Walk steady, don’t run, never sweat. That is a pace I’d like to keep. The great handyman that was my grandfather claimed that in the workshop, the ones sweating were at work, the others at play. Playtime. - KD
