Project Room:Sounding Room
Ruby Sky Stiler: Sun Breaker
10:00 AM-5:00 PM
Locust Projects is pleased to present Sun Breaker, a new installation by New York-based artist Ruby Sky Stiler. For her first solo show in Miami, Stiler expands on her sculptural engagement with the female form and its manifestation in the varied dialects of twentieth-century abstraction. Through the application of at-hand and unfinished building materials, the artist explores the tropical modernist architecture that is native to Miami as a site of sculptural opportunity. With suspended laser-cut screens and wall-mounted plaster reliefs inspired loosely by the city’s vernacular style, Stiler’s installation blocks out new spaces-within-a-space in the main gallery.
Locust Projects is also pleased to present in the Project Room: Sounding Room, a collaborative installation of audio sculptures spearheaded by artists Felecia Chizuko Carlisle and Valerie George. Sounding Room is an adaptable platform for aural experimentation and interdisciplinary art making where sound, object and gesture form a multi-layered and visceral experience.
Eight artists from the east and west coasts have been invited to join Carlisle and George and activate the space throughout the course of the exhibition.
