Karen Reimer: Shoretime, Spaceline

Textile: Cloth and Culture Volume 15:1, March 2017

Look up, the sky is falling or rather floating just above your head. Look down, the lake lies in front of you, vast and serene. In her installation Shoretime Spaceline (2016), Karen Reimer distorts our perceptions of space and time: the sky becomes the sea, the sea becomes the sky, the present and past combine. Responding to the spatial and historical dimensions of the Hyde Park Art Center’s (HPAC) physical site, the artist transforms nature into a soft surface of pattern, color and light, a suspended fabric canopy that horizontally bisects the interior spaces of the central gallery.
