Based on historical camouflage and visual disruption techniques, in theater conveys the geometric landscape of an abstracted battlefield encampment. Overhead, a system of nets, interwoven with strips of fabric, breaks up the expanse of the gallery’s interior, while tangled barricades divide the ground-level space. The spare architecture of the installation reflects hand-made defensive strategies employed at the intersection of manpower and technological power. Catalogue, essay by John Boylan.
