For The Survey Show, Connie Anthes plans Untitled (Wall #1), 2014, an Installation with trees, welded recycled plastic, fishing line.
What are our expectations of a gallery space? Walls with pictures on them, at the very least. Just as the Clandulla State Gallery inverts the idea of what constitutes a gallery, I too am inverting the idea of a gallery wall as a non-participating “solid” element in the gallery space. This translucent wall becomes a flickering, fragile frame for a living landscape, seen both through and around its edges.
