Liz Nofziger @Berwick - October 17
AIR Artist Liz Nofziger¹s Artist Talk!
Tuesday October 17th, 7:30 PM
Berwick Research Institute
20 Palmer Street
Dudley Square, Roxbury.
Liz Nofziger will present past work as well as her new project for her stay with the Berwick. During her residency, Nofziger will be working toward a new large-scale site-specific installation for Columbia College's Glass Curtain Gallery in March 2007. Designed by William Le Baron Jenney (widely considered to be the "father of
the skyscraper"), the Ludington Building (1890-91) is the city's earliest-surviving, steel-frame building.
With the Berwick, Nofziger aims to thoroughly examine, document, develop,
and challenge her process of working site-specifically, with this exhibition
as the outcome. Since a first site-visit in June, she has been compiling
information on Jenney and the space itself, considering its various
histories within the context of current events, and thinking about the
viewer's experience within the space. By compiling an in-depth documentation
of the development of a large-scale site-specific work Nofziger will create
an important experimental trace element. It will serve as a type of evidence
that reveals and solidifies the sometimes circuitous, and often invisible,
paths of investigation and planning.
