THE NEW NATIVE – Wil Swink

April 4 – April 29

Reception: April 8, 6-8pm

A Native is traditionally defined by their place of physical birth. But what about those of us who experience re-birth in a specific place? We are New Natives.

When someone asks me where I am from, I typically tell them my place of birth. But there is this urge to name all the places that have changed me into who I am presently. I think that is a more honest answer to the question. We are from where we have been.

This is a show about the development of an artist. It will explore concepts of how a person makes a home out of something new. That idea will be executed, literally, with the show’s presence in the gallery space. With one side representing a dining room and the other a living room, a new home will be born at Artworks.

The show production will be documented by filmmaker Jacob Beizer, who will then create a short documentary that will be projected on to a 8’x4’ hanging projection screen/piece and looped during normal gallery hours.
