Gildar Gallery says
"My Body Is Everywhere, Where Is The Body?" is an exhibition and installation by the artist duo Hollis + Lana that considers the fragmented body joined with architectural space. Running June 30 – July 30, 2016, the show features sculptural and relief works that physically re-configuring the gallery into an immersive biomorphic chamber. Within a fictional yet familiar model, human biology and psychology expand beyond the current confines of an identified self, taking on qualities of a de-centered and ever-growing environment.

In the making of the artwork, Hollis + Lana had to quickly adapt and grapple with the apparent “will” of their own creations. Through a process of molding quick-setting composite material the sculptures and installation present a sense of arrested organic motion. Frozen in place, intentional yet unpredictable gestures appear to extend or have broken off from the building itself. Mirrored steel, cut from silhouettes of the sculptural forms, serve as reflecting pools and shadows of the objects on display. This duality between projected negative space and the expansive quality of the mirrored surface parallels an accumulation of loss— as the body expands it is also dissipates.

-About the Artists-

Conor Hollis and Amorette Lana began collaborating in 2008. Independently working with a variety of materials and subject matter they have coalesced to become one unified artistic voice. Together, Hollis + Lana focus on expanding the reality of perceptual possibility through mutual gesture. Their two dimensional and three dimensional works have been exhibited in galleries and institutions throughout the US including recent shows in Denver, San Francisco and Chicago. Recent public commissions include the City of Denver, Seattle and New Orleans.
