dirt. - matthew caudle + robert cram
grow op. gladstone gallery. 2013.
dirt explores constructions of the landscape or exterior as being wild, rebellious and expressive, with its counterpart, the indoors, as being obedient, organized and authoritarian.
the installation examines our accelerating ambition to bring order to complex natural systems. hand made bricks are constructed into increasingly more complex nests, a prelusive symbol of manipulation and control in the environment.
