Katie Wynne A chain of non-events

March 15, 2013 – April 20, 2013 Project Space Gallery

Katie Wynne’s installations are exuberant, brushing upon the colors and textures of carnivals, parades and department stores, encapsulating our surrender to comfort and consumption. Duchamp once said of his readymade, Bicycle Wheel, “I enjoyed looking at it, just as I enjoy looking at flames dancing in a fireplace”.  The wheel demonstrates a constant movement, yet one without achievement or progress. Wynne’s installation in the Project Space explores this quality of non-action within the context of an American promise, employing a processional format that stretches the length of the gallery in a continuously shifting landscape of stillness and effort.
