cactus bra SPACE is pleased
to announce the opening of OverGrowth, a site-specific
exhibition by Leslie Mutchler, which explores the inevitable
adaptation of modernist design in todayís contemporary culture.
Modeled after Le Corbusierís Quartiers Modernes Fruges in Pessac,
France, Mutchlerís recycled paper structures collapse and evolve
as rye grass grows wild, destroying the physicality, and perhaps,
the integrity of the modern house structures. The opening reception
for the exhibition will be Thursday, October 1st, 2009,
from 5-8pm and Friday, October 2nd, 2009, from
6-9pm. Due to the nature of this organic material the
installation will be on view for two nights only.
Leslie Mutchler, an artist
working in Austin, Texas builds structures, landscapes, and objects
that aspire to perfection, utilizing recycled paper as a primary
source material. These utopian structures fall continuously short-
at times resolving themselves as an exercise in futility.
