A graceful, if menacing, gray mass stretches across the ceiling from corner to corner. It is inspired by the artist’s explorations as resident artist at Ballenglen Foundation in County Mayo, Ireland. Grade imagined a view from below a bog, looking upward through magnified light-filled pores in layers of soaked peat. The installation suggests both weight and fragility, made from interlocking sections of cast paper pulp, glassine and cellulose that create a thin, puckered and drooping skin above one’s head. Catalogue, essay by Frances DeVuono.
