Annie Woodfill: vagueperimeters
July 17 - August 22, 2015
Op ening: Friday,July 17, 6-9 pm
Join us for the opening of vagueperimeters, a solo exhibition featuring the Kansas City-based artist Annie Woodfill. Woodfill’s site-specific installation intuitively responds to and references the gallery’s existing architecture to create a sprawling system. By using consumer debris, printed screenshots, as well as industrial and found materials, the artist calls attention to the viewer's physical interaction with the space, and the materials' capacity to elicit a variety of layered readings. The constructed environment questions the hierarchy of material and formal choices to uncover how cultural structures of power petition for prominence in spaces of maximal information.
Annie Woodfill is a current Charlotte Street/Urban Culture Project Studio Resident and a graduate of the Kansas City Art Institute. Influenced by the transparency or camouflage of everyday surroundings, she works with composing found materials and ephemera, painting, photography, sound and video. She has shown work at City Ice Arts, Longview College, Main Street Gallery and Paragraph Gallery. In her latest work, fluid organization of storage and “background static” are framed as meta-performance of formal cycles, appropriation, and rehabilitation in culture and landscape.
