de/constructing landscape
NEW WORKS BY annie aqua

MARCH 18 – APRIL 22, 2017

In the annex gallery we are pleased to present ‘de/constructing landscape,’ a solo show of new works by Annie Aqua. Continuing a three-year long project, this series focuses on freeways, exploring the ways in which they function as public or private spaces in between the city and the suburbs, and how they are experienced in time and space. These structures, immediately recognized as iconic and everlasting elements of the suburban American landscape, are taken as a jumping-off point for processes of defamiliarization and disorientation. The artist’s own intervention seeks to deconstruct a societal structure and propose alternate trajectories of experience and understanding.
