A Sac of Rooms Three Times A Day at Suyama Space, or, How Alex Schweder is On Fire This Season

posted by on January 11 at 9:33 AM

Here’s something that, if we hadn’t accidentally left it off of our listings this week, would have been double-dog starred:

Seattle artist/architect Alex Schweder continues his exploration of the permeable relationship between occupied space and occupying bodies, upcoming at Suyama Space, located at 2324 2nd Avenue in Seattle. The site-specific installation, A Sac of Rooms Three Times a Day, opens to the public on January 15 and continues through April 13, 2007. A reception on Friday, January 12 from 5 7 p.m. will be followed by an artist lecture on Saturday, January 13 at 12 noon. Gallery hours are Monday Friday, 9 a.m. 5 p.m. and admission is free to the public. With A Sac of Rooms Three Times a Day, Schweder creates a bungalow-sized, transparent vinyl envelope measuring 21’ x 28’ x 9’ that contains four smaller forms alluding to rooms with such architectonic references as windows, doors, and interior walls. The smaller sacs, similar to the silk volumes of Do-Ho Suh and the concrete castings of Rachel Whiteread regularly inflate and deflate inside the larger envelope in a choreographed sequence. The sacs push against each other and against the interior space of the larger envelope, causing them to distort and re-conform to one another. This writhing “performance” occurs three times a day, each performance lasting 40 minutes.

Want more on Schweder? No problem. He has had two shows at Howard House this fall, this and here.
