Becca Barolli, Out of Hand

The work of Becca Barolli features abstract steel wire sculptures which utilize textile processes to examine issues of obsession and control within the artmaking process. Becca’s work is handmade and unrelentingly labor intensive, consistently fueled by a compulsive need for repetition and reverence. Through endurance-based processes she repeats stereotypical feminine gestures, defying the intended industrial function of her materials.

Using steel wire instead of conventional fibers, Barolli subverts textiles as a medium and pushes the range of expectations that are normally associated with both hard and soft materials; this acknowledges the strength in what is often considered women’s work, as well as the vulnerability in what is commonly associated with masculinity and industrialization.


Project Space

Eric Kunsman, Thou Art…Will Give…

An exhibition of photographs,Thou Art...Will Give...documents the Eastern State Penitentiary, a former prison in Philadelphia, PA. Through this body ofphotographs Eric Kunsman captures the atmosphere experienced by the prisoners during the extended period when the penitentiary was active, in part depicted by photographs of entries from the Warden’s logbooks from the 1800s.

Currently, Kunsman is a photographer and book artist based in Rochester, New York. He works at the Rochester Institute of Technology as a Lecturer for the Visual Communications Studies Department at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf, and is an adjunct professor for the School of Photographic School of Arts and Sciences.
