On Thursday, February 23rd Weather Trust / Between Stars: Offer Balancing Scenarios by Ali Van ’08 will open at the Thomas Erben Gallery in New York City. The opening reception will take place from 6:00 – 8:30 PM. Van‘s work will remain on display until March 18th, 2017. The gallery explains how the exhibition involves visitors, “At the center of the show is an installation in which visitors are invited to hammer a nail into the walls of the gallery, adding a star into a collaboratively built constellation. In the relational structures that Van produces – in objects and situations – she questions how the experience of artwork can reflect our shared vulnerability, and how together we can find balance with each other.
“The show is generated through being present together, as this relational and social process is what invocates Van’s cumulative structures. Deeply inhabiting lightness, the artist and her audience move closer and farther within to create a space infinite in motion.”
