Transference and Elusive Matter at MoCC

November 30, 2009

“Museum of Contemporary Craft”:http://www.museumofcontemporar... in partnership with Pacific Northwest College of Art presents two new exhibitions _Elusive Matter_, and _Transference_.

Transference is is an exploration of the material and aural properties of glass. Portland-based artists Andy Paiko (glass) and Ethan Rose (sound/composition) collaborate to create a kinetic-sound installation reinterpreting the glass armonica, a nearly forgotten instrument.

Elusive Matter explores craft-based media through film and photography, challenging common expectations that craft results in a physical object. Using film’s ability to capture time and space, the works on view by artists Jane Aaron, Mark Hursty and Lauren Kalman focus on material phenomena and abstract process rather than on form.
