It’s a Big World in There

  • “It’s a Big World in There”

The Women’s Studio Workshop will present a special, one night only display, “It’s a Big World in There,” this Saturday, July 26. A collaborative exhibition between sculptor and costumer Kate Hamilton, stop-motion video artist Tona Wilson, and composer and sound artist Jonathan Elliott, the experimental installation will transform Cottekill’s CHRCH Project Space into an immersive and interactive multimedia environment through which viewers can move and explore.

The installation grew out of Hamilton's four weeks as an artist-in-residence at the Women’s Studio Workshop. known for creating room-sized garments, Hamilton worked out of the CHRCH Project Space for the last month, developing new sculptural work and experimenting with rigging, light, and sound through her collaboration with Wilson and Elliott. Known for creating room-sized garments, for this exhibit Hamilton has utilized a translucent sailcloth to create ephemeral and architectural pieces that hang down the full height of Cottekill’s one room church-turned-art-space, creating an environment of what Hamilton calls, “serious play and experimentation.” Wilson and Elliott are creating projections and sound, respectively, that will interact with Hamilton’s sculptures to create layered, ephemeral fields of light, sound, and space.

“It’s a Big World In There” will be presented on Saturday, July 26, 2014 from 4-7pm. The event is open to the public and refreshments will be served. You can learn more at the Women's Studio Workshop's website.
