Christine Hiebert's Reconnaissance: Three Wall Drawings
June 1, 2009 - June 30, 2010
The Davis Museum reopens the light-filled architectural space of the Tanner Gallery with Christine Hiebert’s Reconnaissance: Three Wall Drawings. Hiebert’s site-specific wall installation responds to the monumental space designed by Spanish architect Rafael Moneo, and takes into consideration the fifth-century Antioch mosaic permanently mounted on the gallery wall. Utilizing the language of line on a large scale, Hiebert’s art is an exploration of space: she draws, articulates, and redefines it, evoking a personal, metaphorical, architectural space of her own. Composed of blue adhesive tape as well as paper rolled with ink, this multi-part work expressively commands and engages the monumental architectural space of this top floor gallery.
