Over and Under at Locust Projects, Miami

Over and Under
FRANCES TROMBLY: OVER AND UNDER

Now celebrating 15 years of exhibiting experimental contemporary art, Locust Projects is pleased to present Over and Under, an exhibition by Miami-based artist Frances Trombly. A floor-to-ceiling scaffold in the Project Room is the framework for a handmade canvas which is rhythmically woven in and out, up and down, throughout the structure, visually echoing industrial fabric production. Variables within the fiber hint at its fabrication process: irregularity, asymmetry, glitches, pulls, and tears reveal the manual labor of weaving, standing in contrast to the industrial perfection of commercial cloth and emphasizing the artist’s intimacy with the material.

As Trombly’s largest work to date, Over and Under poses a direct challenge to her studio practice, opening up a new relationship with the physicality of the loom by defying its confines. Expanding on Trombly’s interest in the contrast found in handmade objects that normally are mass-produced, Over and Under focuses on the cloth itself. The work contains a timeline of its own construction, a transcription of the gestures of working and constructing in space. Pushing the size of production transforms the interactions between body, object, and machine in space, and asks the viewer to consider these shifts as well.
