IMPETUS OF ENTANGLEMENT // Erin Paradis // 9.15.17 – 10.19.17
SEASON 2 – SHOW 1
Erin Paradis – Impetus of Entanglement
September 15 – October 19, 2017
Paradis’ compelling ceramic forms are certainly the star of the show here, but the strong supporting cast of other media is what allow her work to function so powerfully as fully fleshed-out installations taking the whole space into account. Swirling around, in communication with and crashing against this sculptural anchor, her drawings, textile wall hangings, three-dimensional textile forms and miscellaneous other precise but surprising gestures, pull it all together into a cohesive whole. Never betraying the crucial element of spaciousness, her work goes deep and rewards long and considered viewing. There is in these forms a feeling of the body, a hazy memory of a strange architecture, as well as a difficult to place otherness, never demanding what is to be seen or how to look.
