poster for Sarah Kabot "One by One"

This event has ended.

One by One is a site–specific work that replicates the architecture and lighting in the gallery. The paper recreation is rotated one foot counterclockwise from the original, creating a three-dimensional double. This repetition is intended to create visual tension between an original object and an intervention, between the existent and the imagined.
Making, for me, is an act of unraveling, of revealing structure at a precise level, and of re-presenting the peripheral elements of our environment. My work focuses attention on secondary aspects of our surroundings – ceilings, floors, light fixtures, notepads – objects that we move past or that pass through our hands with little attention. The sculptures and installations that respond to these objects, take visual cues and materials from an original form to create a secondary experience of that object or location. The work is consciously subtle, encouraging the viewer to be attentive to the nuances of transformation or perception, rather than the seductiveness of the material.
The work proposes an alteration in comprehension. The meaning, significance, or location of objects is not fixed. I seek to provide the viewer with an opportunity to observe their environment differently – to see each object as a focal point for scrutiny.
