Visual artists Todd Laby, Audrey Heller and Pamela Merory Dernham come together to wade through the messiness of how we set our bearings when our notions of origin and destination are in reality mere approximations. Through sculpture and installation the artists explore unsettled notions of returning to origin, memory as approximation, positioning and finding one's bearings.
Laby's installation "Migrating Houses" asks what happens when the ideal of home is uprooted. He has sculpted a herd of wooden houses, lifted skyward on spindly legs, teetering on a steel ground that no longer offers a way for them to plant their foundations. Over several weeks, the houses will journey through the StoreFrontLab. Are they seeking a permanent location? Are they leaving behind an environment that no longer sustains them? Laby's "Migrating Houses" provokes the viewer to consider our ideal of home, whether it be dwelling, town or country. Do we inhabit the world of this uprooted herd?
Laby and Audrey Heller's collaboration "Moving Boxes" invites the viewer to peer into an array of boxes, representing the objects and emotions that we pack and bring with us from place to place.
Dernham's steel wire figures are a metaphor for her rebuilding of her family, her relations, and the connections that she lost. As Dernham's figures bear witness to the migration of the houses possible answers to these many questions resonate between them.
