After the initial chaotic rush that comes with the opening of any big project or exhibition, day 2 of ROLU’s residency brought a welcome calm aided by the break in heat and morning rain. Although the collective were disappointed to not be on the Field building artworks for the galleries that remained tethered under tarp canopies, the change of scenery didn’t seem to slow their productivity or thwart amazing conversations with curious visitors.
Various Projects’ garments remained a huge hit and provided a bright beacon to an otherwise grey day.
Using a mixture of collage elements from print-outs of the original photo, an architectural model of the physical space, a carefully mixed batch of paint, plus a few trickster moves with an exacto knife the room takes on the feel of a Hollywood set.
A few renovations were made along the way before getting to a closer simulation of the “photographic truth.”
Speaking of simulation, Sammie was learning from the master simulcrum-maker, Sherrie Levine…
…his version of Levine’s Yellow Knot Prototype will be displayed in one of the outdoor galleries.
Be sure to arrive well before this time tomorrow night so you don’t miss out on the fun!
