Installation view: Kira Dominguez Hultgren presented by Eleanor Harwood, San Francisco
From Dutch windmills to fans that replace the air in the Hugh L. Carey Tunnel every ninety seconds, Governors Island evinces the histories of revolving (pun intended) technologies and people groups. In “Make Room,” artist Kira Dominguez Hultgren explores through three large-scale sculptural weavings and a cacophony of woven materials, how technical and social revolutions both displace and assimilate that which, and those who, came before. Is it a circular narrative, a traceable line, or is it the uncanny present absence of something more, someone else that both situates and dislodges the maker and viewer in the exhibition space?
