Topological Skew

 

Guest Curator: John David O’Brien

The guiding concept for Topological Skew is to exhibit artworks that reference both more formal topographic mapping approaches, as well as a more oblique or skewed usage of interior topological mappings. The premise is that this artwork is done in response to delineating a territory. The specific modes or territorial transcription processes can range from the painstakingly exact to a more abbreviated jotting, from drawing to sculpture to digital, and the artwork is drawn from artists who create images related to mapping, but not in the literal sense.

 Topological Skew features works by Dawn Arrowsmith, Philip Govedare, Lynn Marie Kirby, Luigia Martelloni, John David O’Brien and Christopher Pate.

 The exhibition space has been divided into discrete separate areas, allowing the artists’ works to create conversations about how mapping can mean more than just a literal transcription of what is above or below what we can see on the ground.
