The Six-Sided Force Opening at Pioneer Works June 15th
"Louise Despont explores drawing as abstract meditations, employing and recasting a vocabulary of elements found within a set of architectural stencils and compasses, onto the pages of antique ledger books. For this exhibition, Despont has borrowed the geometries of beehives, gardens, and found architecture to offer balanced forms that engage past and present as indicators and provocations. In view of colony collapse, and other environmental concerns, the Six Sided Force investigates the subtle architectures, seen and unseen, between nature and human influence.
Concurrent with the exhibition there will be a series of programs and events held in the garden at Pioneer Works which will engage and dialogue with these works further. More programming information will be available shortly.”

“There are things that cannot ever occur with any precision. They are too big and too magnificent to be contained in mere facts. They are merely trying to occur, they are checking whether the ground of reality can carry them. And they quickly withdraw, fearing to loose their integrity in the frailty of realization. ”
