March 16 - April 21, 2007
Opening Reception: Friday, March 16, 2007- 6:00pm-8:30pm
Project 4 is proud to present “Specimen”, a group exhibition of ten internationally selected artists whose bodies of work explore themes of preservation, evolution and documentation.
A specimen can take on many forms and explanations. Culturally, they are used to categorize and compare an archetypal ideal. Biologically, a specimen is an individual taken used to exemplify an entire mass for analysis. Historically, specimens are used to reference change, evolution and experience. The artists selected for this exhibition explore these concepts through the common process of investigation.
Artists make use of documentation in their processes, whether used literally, of a change in a particular artistic medium, photographically, of humans as studies of civilization, or abstractly through subtle changes within each piece. Viewers are allowed to interpret and create the reality they are led to by each of the resulting groups of works.
