PLACEMENT - a collaboration in the Fishbowls

For this collaborative installation in both of our Fishbowl galleries, Blackfish artist Yoonhee Choi and guest artist MaryAnn Puls worked with components from their artistic practices to explore placement. The installation spans 2 separated walls. Dense, cast concrete forms by Puls, and open formations of nails and construction staples from Choi were intuitively positioned. The placement of these attachments served as anchor points; beginnings and endings, markers and place holders, to which Choi then responded with various lengths of string--as if sketching--suggesting and connecting an abstract energy between the placement of elements.
