WHERE IT WAS IS HOW IT IS
by Francesca Lohmann
Saturday, September 10th
6pm – 9pm
A fabric sack filled with wet plaster conforms to a situation, making relationships of weight and pressure visually explicit. As it sets, it becomes rigid, details of stitching and stretching remaining after the fabric is removed.
Cast against my studio wall, this work has a flat side like a face pressed up against a glass or the space made by a millipede under a rock just lifted. An exposure. Situated in the center of the room between entry way and exit, it forms a long low barrier.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:

She holds a BFA in Printmaking from the Rhode Island School of Design, graduated with an MFA from Cornell University in 2014, and is a current participant in Prequel PDX.

ABOUT THE ARTIST SERIES:
Prairie Underground’s Artist Series provides a stipend for artists to create a series of work in their chosen medium that incorporates items from our collection. Sample garments the artist selects can be used in any manner they desire. Prairie Underground’s products essentially become artist’s materials. By investing in the production of new art and inviting artists into our design process we hope to create more precious clothing and ultimately a better world.
