Please join up for the opening reception of Untranslated, a solo show by Heidi Schwegler (on view Oct. 12 - Nov. 25, 2018). This exhibition is a line of inquiry that addresses notions of alien landscapes and their discards. Tossed personal effects and other shards of urban decay were collected from New York City, Beijing and London, most of which became the source material to be altered, transformed and copied in Schwegler's Portland-based studio. Craft-based techniques such as lost wax casting and metal fabrication (amongst others) were employed to manipulate materials such as lead, pewter, glass, 24K gold and plaster. Schwegler is represented by Upfor Gallery, and Untranslated is funded in part by the Regional Arts & Culture Council.
