Patrick Martinez High Low and In Between at PARKER'S BOX

In 1970 Conceptual artist Michael Asher build an installation at the Pomona Collage Museum. In the piece he constructed a interior space within the existing gallery that lowered the ceiling to door level height and reduced all architectural details, it was hailed as a precursor to "Institutional Critique". Patrick Martinez performs a similar re-construction of the gallery space, but for "High Low and In Between" he emphasizes the fragility and temporary nature of the structure by making it from Styrofoam sheets propped on thin plastic poles and, like a house of cards, totally dependant on gravity. In the back gallery a glowing orb that appears every 15 seconds and seems to emanate mysteriously from a wall appears. Together these pieces seem to encourage viewers to a greater intensity of perception.
