Join us for the opening reception, as we welcome artist Carrie Paterson in her solo exhibition: Beneath the Earth, the Sky. Beneath the Earth, the Sky uses the sculptural idea of inversion to contemplate the current moment within a history of contemplative practices. Miniature landscapes and olfactory sculptures serve as mnemonic devices for “home” and temporal experiences. Glass vessels construct models of the cosmos and cognitive psychology — the processes of humans’ understanding of self within the contexts of body, society, world, universe, and the imagination of the invisible, immaterial beyond. Several works are specifically designed for spacefarers, featuring orientation and navigation in combination with olfactory chemistry and cues. The artworks embrace open systems, unpredictability, and feature some degree of stochastic decay.
