reck room
Flashpoint Gallery, Washington DC
2010


This solo project transformed the gallery environment into an immersive space that referenced and embodied various domestic contexts: dens, garages, basements, and entertainment rooms, and the material forms found therein. The included works presented a variety of opportunities and challenges for gallery goers to interact physically and visually with, on, over and around the art objects. The exhibition title reflects this, as it represents a conflation of reck (an archaic English term meaning to be of concern or importance) and recreation room. In short, 'reck room' converted Flashpoint into a decorated, domestic-type setting that gained its gravity in being a site of leisure, play and free time.
