suspending architecture

Exhibition dates: June 1-26, 2006
Opening reception: Thursday, June 1, 6-9 pm

(Portland, OR-) suspending architecture features work by New York based artist Fawn Krieger. These digital and painted drawings are culled from a body of work she completed in 2005 called HOVER. The entire series examines imagined and actual floating structures within a landscape. Inspired by Superstudio, an Italian utopian architecture firm from the 1960s, as well as the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, by Mark Twain, Krieger looks for social and spiritual connective pathways as the destination itself. Her expansive 2 and 3-dimensional constructions seek to both propose and pave new spaces for transformative social structures, propelling fantasy into concrete terms. Expanding the boundaries and expectations of drawing, Krieger’s work contextualizes these raft-like forms as vehicles to redemption, deliverance, and friendship.

suspending architecture will be on exhibit June 1-26, 2006 at Tilt Gallery and Project Space, 625 NW Everett, Suite 106, Portland, Oregon. A reception for the artist will be held on Thursday June 1 from 6-9pm. Regular gallery hours are Fridays and Saturdays noon-5pm and by appointment.

Fawn Krieger received her MFA from Bard College in 2005, and her BFA from Parsons School of Design in 1997. She is currently working on a series of collaborations with Tracy + the Plastics called ROOM.
