December 18, 1998 - February 7, 1999
Minnesota Artists Gallery
New and recent work by six sculptors emphasized kinetic interaction and obsessive strategies for organizing common objects and materials. The exhibition featured a cork bowling alley by Jan Elftmann, the famous “cork car lady”; a high-tech virtual cave that sensed the viewer's presence, by a robot-master Bill Klaila; a fleet of power window chairs with a “California look” by furniture whiz Joy Kops; Bucephalus, a 16-foot model of Alexander the Great's horse, interpreting the human “conquest” of the horse through history, by Alan Wadzinski; Matchbox, by Rollin Marquette, well known for his outrageous and pristine speculations on the nature of ballistics and “the uncomfortable side of creativity”; and an assortment of Rick Salafia's punning reconfigurations of ordinary objects, such as ladders and darts (“no matter what a tool is meant for, it can always be used as a hammer”).
