Edges | Transitions explores the moments of transition when one thing moves into another; the place where edges dissolve. The exhibition is inspired by Pat Badt and Scott Sherk’s recent artist residency in Valletta, Malta. As an island, Malta is a continuous edge. Sharp cliffs define the edge of water and land, cultural conditions define an edge between Europe, Northern Africa, and the Middle East. Its geographic location and long history of conflict have defined it as place of transition.
This exhibition will include sound audio work, large-scale video and color interventions along with individual color studies and small-scale video/sound pieces. Viewers are invited to occupy a central viewing station (an island) to encounter a horizon of color, video and sound events. Additionally individuals works may be seen as boats on the water, developing individual sound-color interactions.
