Emily Fussner: Even a Parking Lot is Beautiful at Dawn
On view: June 19 – August 28, 2021
Even a Parking Lot is Beautiful at Dawn includes new work made by AAC resident artist Emily Fussner over the last year. Fussner casts cracks in parking lots, filling them with wet paper pulp and letting it dry before removing the form. The cast paper forms that she removes from the cracks act as a relic of a specific fracture. Suspended to accentuate their dimensionality, the forms evoke a skeleton, an aerial map, or, as the artist explains “a scar that can cast a shadow.”
