Descent and Flight: Terra Incognita
Thursday, October 16 - Sunday, November 16, 2003Hampden Gallery, Southwest Residential Area
Olivia Bernard is an artist whose work has developed from single sculptures to site-specific installations that merge natural materials and sculptural objects in evocative and sometimes subtly disturbing environments. Her work demonstrates the process and physicality of its making: bundled hay, poured plaster, embedded glass, stiffened cloth as container, mold or structure. Simultaneously global and intimate, primordial and contemporary, Bernard's installations are experienced as journeys in the landscape, occupying physical space and time, covering psychological distances, and searching out more spiritual terrain.
Bernards" recent solo exhibitions have been held at the Collaborative Movement installation, in NY and at the Kunstforum Troadkastn, in Tirol, Austria.
