Reception for "Camelot and other stories" by Deborah Aschheim
RSVP: on Facebook (optional and not required for admission)
Camelot is a ghost city. In the mash-up of urban architecture, buildings from different cities, some misremembered or out of scale, some hybrids of two or more towers, and some ghosts of buildings that have been torn down or were never actually built share space in a luminous landscape that resonates with the memories of cities in the visitor’s mind. The installation was originally created for Tom Bradley International Terminal at LAX Airport in response to the unique state of mind of travelers in a disoriented limbo, a state that the artist considers dreamlike and poetic. For PUMP, Aschheim is installing Camelot in a conversation with some other sculptural meditations on Twentieth Century modernist architecture to bring to life a shifting personal geography of memory.
