APEX: Laura Fritz

Saturday, October 19 more dates through February 22, 2020

Portland Art Museum, Main Building, Floor 4, Gallery 403 1219 S.W. Park Ave., Portland, OR 97205

Laura Fritz combines an immersive installation and video-based work for her contribution to the APEX exhibition series. Working closely with the architectural space that APEX inhabits, Fritz has created a site-specific installation that responds to various points of corners, walls and the floor, taking signals from furniture that allude to tables, cabinets or other ergonomic forms. Juxtaposing these controlled spaces, Fritz brings in natural elements and forms, particularly through her video and light pieces referencing the movements of bees, birds, cats, moths and butterflies. Fritz’s own research, dedicated to such seemingly disparate subjects as architectural sites and the motions of bees, forms a strange and intriguing marriage in her work, opening up questions of what defines the natural and made worlds—where do science and superstition meet, and how do we negotiate our constructed realities to that of the unknown?
