Master of arts thesis exhibitions by two 2005 graduates from the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College.
Artists: Carlos Bunga, Heather Rowe, Michael Sailstorfer Curators: Cecilia Alemani and Simone Subal
In Things Fall Apart All Over Again, three artists employ strategies of construction, destruction, and transformation to explore the architectural structure of the house. Using everyday materials, Carlos Bunga, Heather Rowe, and Michael Sailstorfer build elaborate site-specific installations. Bunga constructs a huge cardboard house (Artists Space Project, 2005), which he then collapses through strategic cuts. In False Hopes/Silver Clouds (2005) and in Untitled (2005), Rowe creates mock rooms in the interstices of makeshift walls. Sailstorfer’s video 3 Ster mit Ausblick (in collaboration with JÃ¼rgen Heinert) shows a little wooden house consuming itself.
