Given Time. Given Place. responds to the space of SOIL Gallery, installing artwork in a way that responds to and interacts with the unique features of the gallery. The seven artists utilize simplicity and a minimalist vocabulary in their works, creating a dialogue with the immediate space surrounding their work – each inevitably affecting the other. The formal elements, materials, and placements of objects work in tandem to redefine the gallery not as a whole, but in parts. Any given place becomes inseparable from the artwork, if only for some small amount of given time.

Artists: Julia Heineccius, Matt Kelly, Scott Kemp, Philip LaDeau, David Andrew Nelson, Scott Proctor, John Radtke.

I recently came across this quote attributed to Franklin D. Roosevelt: “When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.” It suggests to me a desperate yet hopeful kind of optimism, which is the feeling I was attempting to conjure up for this show. I’m not sure how successful I was, but if you line yourself up just right, you might be rewarded with a smile.
