TAPER // a sculptural installation by Scott Bye
March 1, 2016 - June 25, 2016
Eleven Twenty Projects is pleased to present Taper a new installation by Buffalo based artist Scott Bye in its new public viewing space The Front at 1120 Main Street.
To inaugurate Eleven Twenty Project's new space, The Front, local sculptor Scott Bye transformed over 300 cedar fences into a serpentine new work spanning almost 40 feet. Bye considers this new work part of a series of sculptures that “divert the path of old objects” as a way of "re-writing their history.” Using custom cut wooden spacers, the rigid original forms that once served as pallet toppers, morph into a curvilinear playful new structure.
Located in the front window of the gallery at 1120 Main Street, The Front presents a new and unique public art experience. The space measures 4’ x 40’ and invites a variety of uses, from paintings, drawings, video, and temporary performance to imaginative site-specific installations.
Programming for The Front will showcase independent installations, as well as complement current gallery exhibits. More information about submitting a proposal for consideration is forthcoming. Please visit this page again soon.
