Good citizen Gallery: Friday, 30 July 2010
Opening Reception Friday, July 30, 6-10pm
July 30 - August 28, 2010
Killbox is embedded with hyper militarized language, tactics, and procedures that dictate the formal structure of the exhibition. The primary sculpture is a representation of small squad tactical maneuvers and CQB (Close Quarters Battle) techniques. The sculpture itself is loosely based, both aesthetically and structurally, upon stealth technologies. Within the installation, Kirby will call upon theories of perception, specifically as they apply to covert operations and camouflage techniques. The installation and sculpture will work in tandem to transform the gallery and to create an experience that puts the viewer in a self-conscious position relative to a space, an object, and a culture. Kirby's work will extend to the Good Citizen Billboard, with Blue Sky: Killbox which will occupy the project space from July to September.
