JEFFERSON PINDER: THIN SKIN / SHOCK LAYER
The Martha and Robert Fogelman Galleries of Contemporary Art / 3715 Central Ave., Art & Communication Bldg. Rooms 230 & 240 January 18, 2019 - March 8, 2019
This exhibition explores the convergence of sound and the body in the work of Chicago-based artist Jefferson Pinder. From human beings to automobiles, the artist utilizes the body as a kind of medium and a physical space. Featuring Pinder’s video and objects from the past two decades, the exhibition explores the slippages between human and machine, from the anthropomorphizing of cars to the physical force of the human body. Sound, from sampled music to garbled noise, plays a driving force in Pinder’s videos as well as objects, ranging from quotidian to extraterrestrial.
