Dome Drift: Wes Kline + Cristina Molina
Thru: October, 2011
6th Street Container is pleased to present Dome Drift, a collaborative site-specific work by Wes Kline and Cristina Molina.
Choral speech and shaped bodies materialize in an installation that depicts a group of individuals, including an architect, a dancer, a mathematician, and a singer, engaging in plans for construction of a dome within the 6th Street Container. In conjuring an ephemeral dome in the gallery space, Kline and Molina address architectural and social ideals, suggesting a form that seems to simultaneously collapse and coalesce. Its attachment to the production of community, and Fullerâ€™s â€˜Universal Architectureâ€™ makes the dome an ideal container for the exploration for the questions of intimacy, isolation and potentiality.
Molina and Kline work primarily through video and photography installations that use gestural strategies to explore history, landscape, desire, and repetition.
Wes Kline is an artist, writer and assistant professor of photography at University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida. He received his MFA from the University of Illinois, Chicago.
