Homage to the Wind
October 15–17, 2017
Plexus Projects is pleased to present Homage to the Wind, a solo exhibition by Gail Wight. Wight's videos, inspired by Joseph Albers' Homage to the Square, explore the square as a visual device and its impact on the function of the human eye and visual perception. The wind emerges as an invisible apparatus made visible by its impact on the movement of water, birds and foliage. The compositing of the footage activates the technology of the video medium itself as geometric squares intersect with organic forms and are momentarily perceived as “glitch” or digital artifact.
Gail Wight’s exhibition is part of a series of programming examining notions of the “apparatus”.
