LOOM • ROOM • HARP is an installation that weaves together inside and outside, near and far, visible and invisible, artifacts of the past and actions in the present, through the space of the Anderson Gallery at Drake University in Des Moines. This site-specific installation and series of performances taking place periodically from September 2 through October 15, 2021, is a collaboration working alongside Fırat Erdim and Olivia Valentine.
The performances are accessible both in-person and online, via this website and Sunship, the website of the Arts Letters & Numbers 2021 Venice Architecture Biennale Italian Virtual Pavilion.
Throughout the course of the exhibition, the Anderson Gallery will contain dynamic visual and audio artifacts of the periodic performances. Together, these artifacts, performances, and other components of the installation seek to permeate interior with exterior, here with there, now with then.
