Fracture is the unifying theme in the new Dean Project exhibition of work by Tim Berg and Rebekah Myers, but not one that might immediately come to mind when viewing the large wood and ceramic sculptures. "Things fall apart, they break. Fracture, both material and metaphorical is a part of our lives. ... Sometimes we fracture things in search of something intangible, like breaking a wishbone for luck. These actions present us with an opportunity to conjure up some sense of control over the uncontrollable. ... This body of work is meant to provoke the audience to consider a world on the brink of fracture and our place within that world."
Artist: Tim Berg & Rebekah Myers
On the Brink opens on September 15, 2011 at Dean Project in New York.
