Genevieve Quick & Sahar Khoury – in the Project Space Studios
Installations by select Artists in Residence Genevieve Quick and Sahar Khoury
Project Space at Headlands Center for the Arts presents installations created by select Artists in Residence each season. Project Space is a place of exchange among artists and visitors, where ideas are germinated, conversations are shared, and new work is made.
Through August 27, Artists in Residence Genevieve Quick and Sahar Khoury are at work in the Project Space Studios at Headlands Center for the Arts, open to the public Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays 12–5PM.
A closing reception will be held Sunday, August 29, 2–5PM. The reception is free, but reservations are required. More info here.
Genevieve Quick uses tropes of Science Fiction to address otherness and history through performance, sculpture, installation, and video. In her Planet Celadon series, Quick has exaggerated the displacement and alienness of the Asian American diaspora in an absurd intergalactic narrative that features fantastical characters, including narwhals, unicorns, living vases, and an Asianaut. In her Project Space residency, Quick will continue her Planet Celadon series as an interactive video and sound installation that uses the language and format of video games to send a message to the galaxies.
Sahar Khoury creates sculptures and installations that feel at once familiar and jarring, rendering household forms—vases, waste bins, chairs, a sleeping cat—as strange arrangements and accumulations of cement, metal, ceramic, resin, pigments, textiles, and papier-mâché. Khoury’s work has an improvisational and magpie resourcefulness to it, often incorporating rejected or found materials from her surrounding neighborhood, community, and personal daily space as armatures or conceptual starting points. During her Project Space residency Khoury will bring a similar approach to Headlands, incorporating found elements with her familiar materials to create an immersive, architectural, site-specific installation.
