Aluminum Screening, Jute and Wood
Perkins had invited me to consider an installation at their new Collingswood facility. The space was once used as an auto repair shop. The ramp to the second floor had been removed leaving a glorious opening.When I began to conceive the piece I was inspired by the mythology of garage inventors tinkering to do the impossible I re appropriated the major elements of Roustabouts Hold, a cloud held in place. The pieces general sentiment also reflects the holding something precious as in Skylock.
Photographs of the final piece are here.
