SCC Art Gallery Artist’s Reception with Andrew Fallat, Art Gallery (1000 bldg.)
Thurs., Feb. 25: 5-7:30 p.m.

Join us for an artist’s reception with Andrew Fallat to celebrate his solo show: “The Banal in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction.” The show is housed in the Admin bldg (1000) art gallery now through March 4.

The reception celebration will include collaboration with English and Writing students from Shoreline Community College, who will share writing inspired by Fallat’s work at the reception.

About the show:
Through the exploration of kinetic systems and phenomena, Andy Fallat’s work focuses on the condensation of a narrative into an three dimensional object. Building machines and sculptures that are slightly above human scale, he calls attention to our place within a system. Fallat creates creatures and interactive situations with industrial and classically sculptural processes that question our relationships to them and each other.

The work presented in this exhibit is a series of sculptures and low reliefs. They are machines that imitate life. The hope, fear, and complexity that Fallat finds on walks around his neighborhood. It is a shrub as potent as its cousin the mighty spruce. They are lines that become form and patterns that mute shape. It is what happens when two things point to the same mark.
