...
Zhulong Gallery is pleased to announce Architecture as Interface, an exhibition of video and sculpture by Susan Giles. The exhibition will include small and large-scale sculptural works that reconstruct significant buildings from around the world. Moving between the miniature and the large-scale, Giles' two distinct bodies of work point to memory and spectatorship using architecture as its impetus. At once objects to behold, and in the case of the large-scale series, Scenic Overlook, tools for viewing, Giles' recent works articulate the multi-faceted function of architecture. Taking an additional step in the contemporary context, Giles is interested in the slippage of these powerful architectural structures into the realm of the vernacular through the rapid transmission of images of and from these buildings online.
...
Giles re-fashions and scales these larger than life structures using paper, glue, and wood, often turning them into amalgams that cement together architectural features from various periods and geographies. The structures enter a realm of play and become a medium of communication. Giles communicates what the eye records in the moment she encounters these structures, and the materials the artist employs, as well as the craft-like technique speak to the fragility of memory, and the idea of the voyage as a phenomenologic exercise.
