Audra Wolowiec is an interdisciplinary artist whose work oscillates between sculpture, installation, text, and performance, to produce conceptually driven work with an emphasis on sound and the material qualities of language.
Wolowiec's work has been shown and performed at Art in General (NYC), Reverse (Brooklyn, NY), Socrates Sculpture Park (Queens, NY), The Poetry Project (NYC), and RAYGUN Projects (Australia). Her work has been featured in Modern Painters, Brooklyn Rail, Time Out NY, LaVague Journal, and the book CONCRETE SOUND with Christine Shan Shan Hou, published with Norte Maar (Brooklyn, NY). Her residencies include Bemis Center for Contemporary Art and the Physics Department at the University of Oregon. Wolowiec holds teaching positions at SUNY Purchase, Pratt Institute, and is the 2015 Artist Educator in Residence at Dia:Beacon.
Clocktower presents the second annual group exhibition Anxious Spaces: Installation as Catalyst, featuring a selection of artists whose work incorporates dynamic and time-based elements, ranging from robotic interactivity to performance events to social intervention. Knockdown Center's cathedral-like complex, with its breathtaking expanse, mysterious sub-chambers, surprise annexes, and hidden pockets is a dream environment for site-specific and installation art. Taken together, the architecture and the artworks transform the space into a surreal bazaar of curiosities for the adventurous. Anxious Spaces exhibits and installations by Will Ryman, Molly Lowe, Tim Bruniges, Aurora Halal, Lucas Abela, Prince Rama, Audra Wolowiec, and Ben Mortimer are on view at Knockdown Center through July 26, 2015 Saturdays and Sundays, from 2 to 6pm. Or by appointment. More on the installations:more
