Ararat Regional Art Gallery
Inspired by Ararat’s surrounding landscape, WRITHE comprises nine identical mechanical units which respond to and affect each other to contribute to the installation’s larger ongoing kinetic system. Water pulses throughout the space, flowing, at times changing direction, and in doing so continuing the system’s operation. Drawing upon the gallery’s contemporary textile art focus, Writhe references woven patterns and undulating terrain in its forms and movements.
