“The Original Had Dogs I Think” @ MDW Fair


A space within a space within a space…

nAbr gallery is excited to present “The Original Had Dogs I Think”, an exhibition by Milwaukee based video and performance artist, Steve Wetzel at this years 2012 MDW Fair!  Wetzel will work within nAbr gallery structure to focus on how an empty space can become a “place”.  Wetzel will take advantage of the studs of the exterior 8x8x10 foot space as framing mechanisms for the rear projections.  The open doorway emphasizes the partnership between the finished interior and raw exterior by framing a solo object in the center of the space while sharks circle around it.

“I think it’s true that the last layer to any such reductive movement has to falsely terminate at one’s interior. There’s much to say about the various ways one bars one’s own entry upward and outward. The least of which—the least of these barriers or obstacles—is language.”
-Steve Wetzel
