Terrain Exhibitions is pleased to present the 3rd Terrain Biennial!
Exhibition: October 1 – November 15, 2017.
115 sites and well over as many artists are participating. Projects include sites across Chicagoland, Springfield, Iowa City, Los Angeles, Tucson, and Marnay-sur-Seine, France.
Founded in October of 2011 by artist Sabina Ott and author John Paulett, Terrain Exhibitions and The Terrain Biennial repurposes private spaces such as front yards, porches, or windows, turning them into public spaces in order to foster dialogue between neighbors and provide opportunities for artists and viewers alike to experience new perspectives.
Hoses of different colors are no longer serving their normal function, but instead are being used as threads to create a woven pattern. Something that we recognize as commonplace and never give a second thought to becomes line, color and composition. Like water, the design flows out of the coiled bundles. Water spigots are at the center of the bundles, indicating a source and terminal to the flowing design from the porch to the ground.
