Beginning the Shape
December 6, 2014 - January 31, 2015, 2014
Reception Friday, December 5, 8PM
Curated by Madison Killo

Morphogenesis (deriving from the Greek morphê) is a biological term used to explain the genesis of cells and cellular differentiation. It describes the process that causes an organism to develop its shape. Acting as a metaphor for artistic and curatorial production, the exhibition propagates a process of morphogenetic character. It alludes to the invisible influences that develop the shapes of forms. This genesis of form is seen as an ‘open ended becoming’ that is both nonlinear and dynamic. The works in the exhibition enter a playing field with no hierarchical divisions–they and the viewer exist as equal occupant bodies. Existing as a simulation of a body without organs, the result is a morphogenesis of a distinct experiential essence.
Including sound, video and sculpture–the works in Beginning the Shape create a singular installation. These three disciplines lend themselves to a shifting of experience and a total investment in presence. All of the works reference a method of placing the self, emphasizing perception to create a multiplicity through their unification.

Exhibition

Andreas Bunte
Two Films About Pressure
October 18 - November 22, 2014
Reception Friday, October 17, 8pm

The Or Gallery is pleased to present an installation by Berlin-based artist Andreas Bunte. The two films of the installation revolve around the human attempt to reproduce the high and low pressure that occurs in nature. This seemingly scientific concern serves as the starting point for an investigation into two particular sites and technologies affected by the fall of the Berlin Wall and the re-unification of Germany.
