POISE: Peter Christian Johnson press release

November 18–December 31, 2016 at Ferrin Contemporary 1315 MASS MoCA Way, North Adams, MA

Opening Reception Saturday, November 19, 4–6pm

“POISE explores the tension between acts of labor and collapse, between precision and failure.  It is a meditation on entropy that uses Gothic cathedrals as a foil to examine the dichotomy of beauty and loss. For this exhibition Johnson has created a series of highly organized architectural forms based on the floor plans of historic cathedrals. These forms are distorted and deconstructed under the weight of the glaze in an attempt to find virtue in brokenness.” — Peter Christian Johnson
