Current Exhibition

N/A: An Architectural Ceremony

Sept. 5-Oct. 19, 2018

Opening Reception: 4:30-7:30 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 13

United by a fascination with materiality and a mutual interest in narratives told through space and without the reliance of physical being, the collaborations between Ahmed Ozsever and Neeraja D, together known as N/A, hint at vestiges of the human form—presences now invisible and manmade qualities of building that remain long after the creators are gone. Their collective body of work examines relationships between architecture, language, and time, reshaping each element’s definition and expanding their boundaries beyond society’s constructs. An Architectural Ceremony, N/A’s exhibition on view at Carthage College’s H. F. Johnson Gallery of Art, employ these intersections as a jumping off point. Rather than displaying individual works that are unified under a single exhibition concept as within a conventional two-person show, the artists instead begin with found architectural drawings from years past—a prompt that effortlessly fuses the components of interest, letting each resulting work of art unfold to influence the next.
