Things Fall Apart All Over Again

May 7 – June 4, 2005

One of two exhibitions organized by Bard College's Center for Curatorial Studies

In Things Fall Apart All Over Again, three artists employ strategies of construction, destruction, and transformation to explore the architectural structure of the house.

Curated by Cecilia Alemani and Simone Subal

Opening reception
Saturday, May 7, 6 - 8pm

Using everyday materials, Carlos Bunga, Heather Rowe, and Michael Sailstorfer build elaborate site-specific installations. Bunga constructs a huge cardboard house, which he then collapses through strategic cuts. Rowe creates mock rooms in the interstices of makeshift walls. Sailstorfer’s video (in collaboration with Jürgen Heinert) shows a wooden house consuming itself.
