South: Floor / Ceiling
An exhibition of work by Jane South (Critic, Sculpture) has opened at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Ridgefield, Conn.
South’s practice has consistently engaged space in an architectural manner, drawing in three dimensions with paper. Combining rigorous geometric abstraction with the chaotic nature of urban and industrial infrastructure, her constructions push the material constraints of paper, offhandedly referencing, among other things, the engineering of ductwork, catwalks, and fire escapes. South’s project at The Aldrich will be her largest single construction thus far: a twenty-two-foot-square “suspended ceiling” will horizontally transect the twenty-five-foot-high Project Space, viewable from both above and below. Informed by her background in theatre, the installation will resemble a fly loft grid and will be dramatically activated by an agglomeration of cut and painted forms.
