Pre-Exhibition Talk for the BRINK Exhibition
Facebook Event Page: https://www.facebook.com/events/1358385934228452/
We are delighted to announce an Artist Talk with David Bowen (USA). David will discuss his practice, his work in the exhibition and will give us a window into his current Artist Residency at Pier 9 in San Francisco, (referred to as ‘the world’s finest workshop’). Please join us for this relaxed pre-exhibition talk and feedback session.
The work David produces is intelligent, multi-faceted and poetic; it comes with titles like Networked Bamboo and Tele-Present Wind that only hint at the rigorous thought process and technical proficiency that goes into the creation of each installation. The works are usually robotic, mechanical, electronic, science-based. They connect with natural phenomena in ways that are revealing, subtle and often poignant. He tends to focus on environmental issues; trying to understand how natural systems function, how he can reveal something about their workings or their failures, and how humans interfere. In the last year his work has been exhibited in Toronto, Poland, California, Netherlands, Germany, Tokyo, France, Pittsburgh, Savannah, UK, San Francisco and New Westminster
David is Associate Professor of Sculpture and Physical Computing at the University of Minnesota. He is an artist and educator whose work has been featured in numerous group and solo exhibitions nationally and internationally in such places as Laboratoria Art & Science Space Centre, Moscow, National Art Center, Tokyo, Soap Factory, Minneapolis, Vox Populi, Philadelphia. He is concerned with the aesthetics that result from interactive, reactive and generative processes as they relate to intersections between natural and mechanical systems.
Don’t miss it.
