In October 2014, Luftwerk transformed Mies van der Rohe’s historic Farnsworth House into a revelatory canvas of light and sound through their installation titled “INsite”, resulting in a reanimation of our understanding and appreciation of an iconic architectural space. The four-night installation acted as an exploration into Mies van der Rohe’s architectural philosophy through a dynamic display of light, video-mapped in such a way as to engage the structure of the house, the fluidity of its transparent glass walls, and the organic – where natural form meets man’s geometry.
This fall, Matthew Rachman Gallery will present “INsite ONview” featuring artwork by Luftwerk and photography of the 2014 installation of “INsite” by Kate Joyce. INsite ONview is an exhibition of limited edition photographs and dynamic, kinetic ephemera based on the installation, its documentation, and further musings on the storied house.
The gallery will host an opening reception Friday, September 11 from 6 – 9 pm, at which all artists will be in attendance. The exhibition will run September 11 – November 8, 2015.
