My favorite exhibition at MASS MoCA was Material World: Sculpture to Environment. The piece I showed yesterday was part of this, as are the pieces below. What I liked most was how each unique installation led into the next. The installation below is by Orly Genger and was created using 100 miles of rope. It's so intense and just looks heavy. In the third picture you can see how it's juxtaposed with the rear gallery - lightweight twisted paper dripping from the ceiling. I love this particular pairing.
The paper installation by collaborators Wade Kavanaugh and Stephen B. Nguyen continues on the second floor. In the lower (window-less) space root-like structures hang from the ceiling. In the upper space, they seem to grow out of the floor. Both Jake and I laid on the floor and looked up into the trunk, which was every bit as complex as the outside structure.
