Steve Reber: Anemic Compass
Anemic Compass introduces a new body of work in which Steve Reber considers the high-performance vehicle as a multi-layered point of departure for examining American culture. The exhibition will feature the large sculpture Auto Mending; a full-scale model of an automobile that is stripped down and modified. The girth of the vehicle is absent, while the open structure of the work carries the footprint of factory standardization. The sculpture’s dimensions and cast tires give the viewer clues as to its origins, yet Reber deviates and injects elements such as printed fabric, window screening, and denim, which weaves domestic concepts.
