"my corpse is not yet quite up to scratch"–a new installation by krista hoefle for Vespine Gallery (Chicago, IL). July 7-29, 2006. Opening Reception–Friday, July 14, 2006 from 7-10pm.
A year ago, I took Joshua Davis' class "Building Art-Making Machines" at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass, CO. A year later, most of the work for my new installation–entitled "my corpse is not yet quite up to scratch'–has been designed by the art making machines I learned how to create in this amazing workshop. The objects, photographs, digital drawings, animations and videos that comprise this installation allude to a borderless, failed, monstrous body. A group of object-misfits defined by ill-fitting material combinations and form reconfigurations, the techniques and materials that are used highlight human error. I juxtapose and integrate technological modes of production with other low-tech materials and processes–generative computer animations and prints are combined with objects that fill and spill into cavities of latex, rubber, plastic, and goo.
