OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, September 10, 2010; 6 - 9pm
Transformer presents Liverpool, UK based artist Rebecca Key in her first US solo exhibition.Rebecca creates installations that question the creative process and explore the background narrative of artists, artworks and galleries. In her work she references buildings where galleries are housed, their social contexts and their associated preconceptions.
With Archetype, Rebecca investigates the design of Transformer's gallery space, and the worldwide use of white walls and grey floors to create gallery spaces. Collaborating on the project are Scenic Artist Greg Winter (whose credits include Batman Begins, The Bourne Supremacy and Tim Burton's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) and Art Director and Set Dresser Emma Dalton (various BBC, ITV, Channel 4 dramas, soaps, and children's television). Greg and Emma will carry out the physical 'dressing' of Transformer
