Kristin Abhalter: Myopia

2016

June 10th – July 22nd

 

Kristin Abhalter draws on her experiences as a set designer to create an installation inspired by real and imaginary landscapes explored during a residency in Reykjavík, Iceland.
Employing a broad range of materials and techniques including painting, carpentry and sewing, Abhalter combines experiments in color, repetition, and pattern with the means of production associated with stage spectacle.
MYOPIA is the second in a series of exhibitions structured around the manifestation of an imagined opera.  The first exploration of the work – SIXES (prelude) at SÍM Gallery, Reykjavík – 
proposed  an architectural model of an idealized environment for the opera.  
 MYOPIA (overture) sets the stage with a collection of exaggerated and distorted visions, condensed into forms with elements of costume, suggesting the potential for characters to emerge.
