Shaker: Marek Walczak and Wesley Heiss
AUG. 22-OCT. 15

The artist team Walczak & Heiss makes work that responds to the unique characteristics of a particular place. In Shaker, a magical yet seldom-seen nut-
harvesting machine becomes a sculptural form filling the gallery. As visitors walk through the space, the machine is at first unrecognizable, perversely distorted through digital manipulation. Yet, from one singular vantage point, the piece pulls into focus. In this spot, perception and function collapse as the shaker defies its grand scale to crack a single nut.
