Zhulong Gallery presents Susan Giles: Architecture As Interface opening reception
Zhulong Gallery presents Architecture as Interface, an exhibition of video and sculpture by Susan Giles. The exhibition will include small and large-scale sculptural works that reconstruct significant buildings from around the world.
Moving between the miniature and the large-scale, Giles’ two distinct bodies of work point to memory and spectatorship using architecture as its impetus. At once objects to behold, and in the case of the large-scale series, Scenic Overlook, tools for viewing, Giles’ recent works articulate the multi-faceted function of architecture. Taking an additional step in the contemporary context, Giles is interested in the slippage of these powerful architectural structures into the realm of the vernacular through the rapid transmission of images of and from these buildings online.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through January 23, 2016.
