Core: Site Specific Installation by Liz Nofziger
Exhibition Dates: March 12 - April 20, 2007
Columbia College Chicago is proud to present CORE, a site-specific installation by visual artist Liz Nofziger. CORE presents an abstracted “core sample” of architect William LeBaron Jenney’s Ludington Building which now houses the Glass Curtain Gallery. Nofziger will create CORE by working with the physical space of the gallery, its myriad past and present uses, and its architecturally significant beginnings. Viewer exploration will complete the work, revealing reflections of the building's past, from the vibration of printing presses to toothpaste and auto-parts.
Nofziger states, “I examine scale and demand physical involvement and curiosity from the viewer. I aim to challenge the viewers’ perceptions and awareness of their surroundings within the exhibition and beyond. I am interested in broadened relationships to our environments, current events, and history within the context of physical personal experience and the impact each of us has on the future.“
