BFA Thesis exhibition “Humbleabode + Wanderlust” as a dual exhibition will open November 17th at The FAB Gallery. The reception is 5-7pm and the artist’s talk will be at 6pm. It will be up until December 11th.
The front space will be occupied with cardboard materials in a site-specific installation by BFA candidate Grace Thornburg. “By creating a relatable space using familiar materials, I hope audiences will feel more comfortable and be further inclined to interact with the work” Thornburg says. Through this site-specific installation, Grace questions what home means to the audience in our time. There will be a component Thornburg wants the viewers to interact with.
The backspace will be exhibited “Wanderlust” in a multimedia site-specific installation by another BFA candidate, Erin Polivka. Polivka explores the relationship between humans and the environment. Culling shapes and colors from landscapes and nature in her mind Polivka twists and improvises materials in her process to arrive somewhere fantastical and otherworldly. Using found fabric, wire, and paper mâché she envisions humans in nature in a harmonized landscape.
