Reception: January 29, 5-7 pm
In The Moments Between, Vera’s new sculptures utilize building materials and domestic objects, which revel in a state of in between-ness and occupy ambiguous space relative to production and consumption. Fabricating his palettes, furniture and other objects entirely from scratch and combined with brand new pillows, cinder blocks or palette trucks, these materials are sourced for artistic purposes alone. Soft surfaces meet hard edges where lightness and weight collude in works characterized as much by finesse as they are by heavy lifting. In this way, each sculpture is a proposal.
To provide discursive context for Vera’s practice, curator Jessica Cochran integrates into the exhibition additional works from Vera’s archive and by other artists, including: Jessica Bardsley, Jaclyn Jacunski, Kirsten Leenaars, and Sonja Thomsen For more on the show: http://www.colum.edu/adgallery/
