ProjekTraumFN l‘atelier Glidden Wozniak extends a warm welcome for you to join us for the upcoming two person exhibition Mooring by Mark Earnhart and Jodi Lightner. The installation is site specific, as Lightner recreated a floor plan of ProjekTraumFN’s space in her Billings, Montana studio, and both artists developed the work specifically for the space. Earnhart will be presenting multiples of objects such as fabricated aluminum sculptures, miniature ladders made of wood, and laser engraved aluminum castings. Lightner’s intensly detailed work includes multiple pieces of cut mylar which are painted with ink and acrylic.
Upon an invitation to exhibit, the artists researched Friedrichshafen and wrote about the influence of place on their work:
“Friedrichshafen Germany is situated near the boarders of Switzerland and Austria on the shoreline of Lake Constance. The city is a major producer of aviation technologies and is most notably the site where the first Zeppelin Airships were designed and are still built today. The region is home to some of the world’s most innovative aviation companies and manufacturers and has a long history within the field of aeronautics and engineering. It is within this arena of lighter than air flight that our exhibition pivots.
Zeppelin Airships, blimps and dirigibles have a storied history within aeronautics and popular culture. There is the immediate fascination with the matter of scale these vessels inhabit and the gigantic infrastructures required to keep them afloat. These containers of an invisible gas lighter than air, swimming to destinations, have fascinated and enthralled generations. The impetus for this exhibition is within this invisible volume and the notion of lighter than air which is easier to experience than describe.”
The title Mooring has to do with the idea of controlling almost unimaginable volume and scale. Mooring also has a connotation of steering and holding to a moral foundation as a reflection on the current political climate. The artists will speak about their influences and work at the opening reception on June 9th, 2017
