LAND AND SEA
Stove Works, Chattanooga, Tennessee
Curated by Mike Calway-Fagen, Stove Works, + Daniel Fuller, Atlanta Contemporary
August 10 - September 9, 2018
INAUGURAL SHOW: LAND AND SEA
Over time answers to the mysteries of the world, the ones hidden in the depths of the oceans, atop mountains, and embedded in the soil beneath our feet, have gradually revealed themselves. Similarly, there are mysteries of our own making, systematic forces of industry that see towns and cities, neighborhoods, rise up around us affecting how humans interact with one another, as well as their built and natural environments. But there is still more, so much more, maybe even too much. Stove Works in collaboration with Daniel Fuller, Curator of the Atlanta Contemporary, introduces the exhibition, LAND AND SEA. Through sculpture, video, painting, and sound, LAND AND SEA explores how water, air, and soil, those specifically of Chattanooga and East Tennessee, are altered, inhabited, mythologized, reduced, abused, explored, and celebrated.
