Construct:Destruct, Open Until Implosion


In 2011-2012, curator Jackie Hoysted began to use her modest home in Bethesda, Maryland, as exhibition space she called Count Down Art Space. She began a series of group exhibitions in the empty home, which culminated in the last group exhibition in which I participated called Construct:Destruct.


Since I was in the most heavily trafficked room of the house—the living room—I needed to address the flow of visitors to the space. I  decided to create free-standing pieces that reflected the nature of the exhibition space and allowed passage from room to room. My work referenced the building materials that are usually unseen—hidden behind walls, floors, in ceilings. In some cases, I exposed the interior of a wall space, in others I created free standing sculptural pieces using things like attic insulation and ductwork. The use of line was a dominant motif in the work created for Count Down.
