Robert Beatty, Suspended Passthrough

Monday February 11, 2019 11:00 am EST
Cost: Free

January 17, 2019 – March 3, 2019

Robert Beatty repurposes the tools of outmoded technology, creating hybridized drawings, videos, sculptures, music, and installations that blur sensory boundaries. In his visual world, the lines between the artificial and organic are almost completely eliminated, an effect that is both comforting and disquieting. In Suspended Passthrough, Beatty has filmed a manufactured landscape that he hand-crafted from concrete forms. Those forms are molded from blister packs—the plastic containers that hold many everyday products—and include packaging for batteries, phone chargers, and Trader Joe’s frozen garlic. For this site-specific work, Beatty employed film techniques from decades past, particularly those used in sci-fi programs from the 1970s and 80s.
