FEATURED ARTIST PROJECT: INGE BRUGGEMAN
April 18 - June 29
DEPOSITS | a Featured Artist Project by Inge Bruggeman
April 18- June 29, 2019
Featured artist, Inge Bruggeman will be exhibiting her new project Deposits, which is the second piece in her ongoing series called The Active Reading Series where readers explore the physical act of reading in different ways. Deposits is a book that is meant to be read while ascending or descending a short ladder.
She will also be displaying another recent book project titled, The Quickest Forever, a contemplative series of works rendering language as an attempt to know, control, and own one’s existence over time. Inspired by the life and work of Orra White Hitchcock, one of America’s earliest women botanical and scientific illustrators and artists, Inge investigates the book as a geological artifact in itself. The exhibition will also feature other sculptural and framed works that engage the viewer in asking how we embody information (text, words, language) from our surrounding environment and how it becomes part of the layers of ourselves.
Opening Reception: April 18, 2019, 6:30 pm
