Group Exhibition in Iceland- Press Release

Group exhibition ‘Precipice’ at Deiglan, Akureyri, Iceland, curated by Dana Hargrove

14:00 – 17:00, May 13th & 14th, 2017

Deiglan, Listagil , Art Street, Kaupvangsstræti 23, Akureyri, Iceland

 

Artists Dana Hargrove, Dawn Roe and Rachel Simmons and geographer Lee Lines announce a group exhibition titled:

PRECIPICE

….

The USA-based artists and collaborators of the group exhibition Precipice have created an exhibition that uses the Icelandic landscape as a vehicle, or jumping off point (precipice) to prompt thoughtful deliberation on universal concerns. Each artist has allowed Iceland’s landscape to infiltrate into the content of their art practice while conducting fieldwork or participating in Icelandic artist residencies. The works, of varying mediums and theoretical approach, promote multi-faceted interpretations, yet often cross paths in areas concerning memory, perception, representation, consumerism, climate change, and sustainability.

 

The installation format, including the use of wall text, encourages broader conversation regarding our perceptions of landscape as a natural, cultural, and politicized entity. The artists wish to serve as alt rogue ambassadors (#altgov) for the USA, among the many in opposition to the current Trump administration’s attack on science and intellectualism, which unless resisted could very well jeopardize life on this beautiful planet.

New work- Local Exhibition

New work- Local Exhibition

New work by Dana Hargrove is now on view at Winter Park’s New General through a curated project with Ginger Duggan of Curator Squared.

The first thing you may notice about Dana Hargrove’s exhibition for New General is a deliberate layering—seen literally in the installation itself, where multiple pieces comprise the larger whole; and within the work itself, where shapes are stacked one on top of the other, forming intricate networks. While Hargrove employs a wide range of media, most of her work deals with systems within nature and how we as humans exist within and/or interact with these environments. At times, they are more literal (as in her storefront collages) and other examples are abstracted representations of space and place.

The “cairn” watercolors, while originally inspired by stacks of rocks in her native Scotland, are not tied to that specific place. Instead, they become studies of shape, color and abstraction that trigger different interpretations for everyone. The same symbolic stacks take on far different realizations in the cardboard formations that Hargrove creates and then photographs in different settings. Here the work is multi-layered as well: the original stacked cardboard sculpture is the work of art, the performative act of incorporating into different spaces is a work of art, as is the resulting photograph of the action. Perhaps the final layer is where and how each of us interact with the installation.
