November 2 – December 19, 2004
The UAM is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new work by German-born, Los Angeles-based artist, Alice Könitz. Könitz will create a site-specific installation for Centric 66, the artist’s first solo museum exhibition. The exhibition includes sculptures, collages, and a video projection, which together address issues of sunlight and sculpture in architecture. Like many of the best young sculptors in Los Angeles, Könitz uses the medium to investigate the relation between actual space and represented space, to diagram and coordinate these different but complexly related kinds of space. Developing what could be seen as an idiosyncratic vocabulary of materials (vinyl, cardboard, Plexiglas, plywood, and fabric) and concerns (architecture, chance, theatrical staging, and reflected light), Könitz stages her formal investigations in order to allow her work to resonate poetically.
