Meet Rebecca Ward at her gallery talk on Friday October 7 at 7:00 p.m. The gallery talk is free with admission during CAM Raleigh’s October First Friday after-hours activities. Admission is always free for CAM Raleigh members, NC State faculty, staff and students, children under 10 and active military. Rebecca Ward’s exhibition, thickly sliced, transforms CAM Raleigh’s Independent Weekly Gallery, creating unexpected pathways that inspire visitors to reconsider how we perceive our surroundings.
Ward’s site-specific works are intricate and thoughtfully planned geometric installations applied to an interior in a way that comments on the site’s architecture. Ward’s signature medium is tape—be it electrical tape, duct tape or masking tape. Through this medium she explores the unique structures of the sites in which her installations are situated. Rebecca Ward: thickly sliced is on view in CAM Raleigh’s Independent Weekly Gallery through October 31, 2011.
The walls and floors of a room act as a multi-dimensional canvas to display the lines of my installation. Similarly, paintings hold the same architectural qualities as walls and floors. The edges of a canvas act as architecture much as a column or support beam does in a room. —artist Rebecca Ward
