Whitney Biennial 2017 Audio Guide Playlist
Victoria Sobel: I am Victoria Sobel.
Casey Gollan: I’m Casey Gollan.
Victoria Sobel: Casey and I are artists that have been working for a few years with the idea of text and the materiality of institutions.
Narrator: The artists respond poetically to the real, physical material of institutional buildings.
Victoria Sobel: Oftentimes we'll pick elements of buildings like bricks or windows to really further examine, in this case the artificiality of glass as a process which bridges the natural and the artificial, has been of extreme relevance to us in considering how that is a metaphor for analog and digital ways of thinking about text and language.
We've been thinking a lot about glass as a material, glass as a ubiquitous material, and as a type of extended metaphor for something that transposes visibility and a surface for writing and communication.
