Looking for Something Bigger

Looking for Something Bigger

An interactive installation by Preston Drum at Forage Modern Workshop

Forage Modern Workshop is pleased to announce Looking For Something Bigger, an interactive installation by Minneapolis based artist Preston Drum. Drum’s interactive installations present a stage of distortion, using everyday objects to create a blurred version of reality.

 

Using materials such as cardboard, wood, drawings, paintings, video, and re-purposed materials, Drum will transform Forage Modern Workshop into a make-shift studio, an environment inspired by relocating his current studio space. 

 

Looking For Something Bigger testifies to the continued fascination of the artists’ studio as a concept, psychological construct, social point or periphery, a site of identity, a site of performance and myth. It presents a pause in time of either factual or fictitious process of production, transforming the artists’ studio from an enclosure to a realm of openness.

 

Preston Drum’s work has been exhibited at Jonathan Ferrara Gallery in New Orleans, Minneapolis Institute of Art, Walker Art Center, and The Soap Factory in Minneapolis.
