The Phatory LLC is pleased to announce MAN SIZE, an installation by Andrew Kearney. The exhibition opens on September 22nd and will run through October 27th, with an artist reception held on Thursday, September 20, between 7 and 9:00 p.m.
For this return to the gallery Kearney orchestrated another interactive environment that draws visitors attention to the presence and absence of others. Wall-mounted rotors suggest one has entered a chamber that breaths as minute changes to the surrounding elements responds to where one meanders. Other encounters include photographs of the after effects of someone who is not there while elsewhere in the room floats a pilot-clad mannequin that seems unable to leave.
As an installation artist, Kearney creates site-specific environments designed for public interaction as an integral part of the work. His installations have transformed many well known spaces into artworks that offer a different sense of self in relationship the people, places and things that constitutes one’s life.
