This event has ended.

Zac Hacmon’s first solo exhibition in the courtyard, Afterlife. Hacmon uses architecture as a mediator and is interested in notions of the non-place: spaces without history or identity.

The installation consists of three devices concealed by 4x4 inch white industrial tiles. Two of these forms are sealed with transparent glass and tilt towards the ground at a steep angle. The third sculpture, called Program 1, is equipped with 16 grab bars suggesting safety and security. Hacmon’s work does not harbor the efficiency usually found in architecture and object design. Instead, focusing on techniques and elements from both the old and the modern, he tries to create the “super-modern”, changing agreed upon ideas of necessity, functionality, and memory.
