Type A is the collaboration of Adam Ames and Andrew Bordwin. "Throw" straddles the line between violence and beauty, danger and amusement. Taking inspiration from the age-old circus act of knife throwing, the duo presents a contest of skill with each member taking a turn trying to hit a target with a knife after the tip has been dipped in graphite. "Menace" explores the seemingly timeless existence and authority of male threat. Shrouded in darkness, a series of photogravures find each member of Type A enacting a series of poses, some of which are overtly hostile while others are more ambiguous, the inky black hides key details.
Opening reception: Thursday, January 17, 5 - 8 p.m.
The Gund Gallery exhibitions and programs are made possible, in part, by the Gund Gallery Board of Directors and the Ohio Arts Council.
