1. A Hole in My Bucket


January 14, 2017, 7-10PM
Work by: Cameron Harvey (Curated by Jordan Martins)
Elastic Arts: 3429 W Diversey Ave, Chicago, IL 60647

For her show at Elastic, Harvey distributes her work across not only the white gallery walls, but also in more integrated ways connecting with the interior space: interspersing small ceramic works amongst orchids she situated on shelves behind the bar, placing a small sculptural work on the coffee table, and painting an entire wall as a backdrop to a work on canvas stacked on plaster sculptures. True to Harvey’s work more broadly, her installation of these objects at Elastic displays a subtle balance of form and open space.
