The Allure of the Tempest

New and exciting things are just around the corner for Redux! Next up: The Tempest, a site-specific installation by visiting artist, Jason Hackenwerth, that will be on view May 18 – July 7, 2012.  Known for his large-scale balloon installations, Hackenwerth’s work has been widely exhibited across the US and and abroad. He was recently awarded the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Inc grant.

For the Tempest, he will exhibit experimental sculptures cut from plywood and designed to fit together with a tongue in groove construction technique allowing the forms to be assembled like a giant puzzle and be held together by gravity.  Inspired by the iconic sculptures and mobiles of past masters, each of Hackenwerth’s works are an expression in the evolving language of sculpture.
