II Machines: Clive Murphy & Trevor Tweeten

Curated by Jessamyn Fiore

II Machines presents two site-specific sculptural installations that address the Knockdown Center’s physical space by sculpting the immaterial; light, air and sound. Clive Murphy presents the latest incarnation of his ongoing series Almost Nothing – Trash Bag Inflatables, anarchitecturally orientated kinetic inflatable construction created from adjoined trash bags. It rises like a monumental minimalist structure yet is composed from readily accessible everyday material. Trevor Tweeten’s Running in Eight Directions is a projection machine composed of eight 16mm film projectors that loop a single strip of film, projecting in eight directions simultaneously illuminating the varying contours of the space. Working with dancer Lydia Chrisman, Tweeten has created a new film that explores the organic minutia of the body in movement as contrast to the industrial space and machinery through which it runs.

Opening reception: Saturday, May 2, 4 to 7pm
