Garrison Art Center is pleased to present, Divergent Boundaries, a solo exhibition of digital media, video, and sound works by Matt Frieburghaus. This will be his first solo exhibition in the Riverside Galleries at Garrison Art Center. The exhibition will be on view from January 25 – March 1 with an opening reception on Saturday, January 25, from 5-7pm.
Divergent Boundaries is an exploration of landscape, nature and sky produced with video, sound, print, and objects as a response to sensory experiences. Specifically, this body of work focuses on light, land, and sound recorded during three trips that Frieburghaus made to Iceland between 2014 and 2018 and reflects his continued interest in Icelandic sub and low-Arctic landscapes. For him, this environment represents the history of the earth—past, present and future. The works on exhibit range from 3-dimensional wall projections, to wall objects made from 3-D printers, and video. All depict landscapes of ice, water, land, and sky.
Frieburghaus is carrying forward his interest in animation and computer art and expanding it into real space in the form of projections accompanied by sound, 3D objects and single channel videos. He finds expression in defining “place” and in this case that place is Iceland with all the requisite sounds of wind, birdlife, and melting ice. Iceland, with its rapidly changing glacial landscape due to climate change, represents for Frieburghaus a kind of existential moment where he finds himself documenting formations that may not exist in their present form for very much longer. This knowledge makes capturing the sounds of wind, water, and birds all the more compelling and urgent. In the summer of 2020, Frieburghaus will be visiting Svalbard, an archipelago located halfway between Norway and the North Pole in the Arctic Ocean north of continental Norway, about 650 miles from the North Pole. His observations and documentation of the natural landscape will continue there while on the Arctic Circle summer expedition.
