Thus Preempting Our Inevitable Failure

About

The absorption and assimilation of one edifice into another changes the inherent meaning of a particular space. The Parthenon is regarded as an enduring symbol of Ancient Greece, Athenian democracy and one of the world’s greatest cultural monuments. This installation creates a contemporary hybrid between one part of a collective cultural history and another (The Rochester Art Center) that challenges the viewer’s idea of what transpires inside a contemporary art gallery. The work alludes to the more enigmatic adoration of the space within the space itself. The unobtainable yet desirable, that lies just outside the realm of our immediate comprehension. Thus questioning the collective admiration for the contemporary exhibition space by referencing already established cultural signifiers.
