THERE AGAIN GALLERY TALK
Saturday, August 6th, 2:00 pm
“There Again”, is a new site specific installation created especially for Lyndon House Arts Center, by artists Jon Swindler and Michael McFalls. The Athens-Clarke County Leisure Services Department will host the artists for a gallery walk and conversation about their work, process and collaboration on Saturday, August 6 at 2 PM at the Lyndon House.
Michael McFalls and Jon Swindler began working collaboratively in the winter of 2015 in preparation for an exhibition in Sweden at the University of Gothenburg, HDK Steneby. With that exhibition the artists sought to examine the very nature of collaboration. They produced works remotely, and in advance of the on-site installation, via digital file sharing and autonomous studio production. Their efforts were combined in the exhibition titled “From Here to There,” which consumed a massive gallery with site-specific printed and sculptural works. The second permutation of this work was installed at Marcia Wood’s Canterbury space last January in an exhibition titled “Here Again.” In that version, remnants from the previous exhibition were combined with elements/materials from each artists’ individual studio practice and featured a massive, composed pile of materials that served as both repository and resource for the installation. For the exhibition at Lyndon House Arts Center, Mike and Jon have incorporated elements from previous collaborations in addition to new works, created on-site. In this exhibition titled “There Again” they acknowledge and manipulate the role “the multiple” plays in both of their practices, Mike as a sculptor and Jon as a printmaker. This third manifestation features a combination of discreet works as well as large site-specific installation incorporating a variety of media.
