Patricia Boinest Potter: Patterns of Place
This video accompanies the exhibition Patricia Boinest Potter: Patterns of Place.
Produced and Directed by John Reynolds
Executive Producer: Mark Sloan
Patricia Boinest Potter creates enigmatic artworks in the form of three-dimensional maps that she refers to as Isomorphic Map Tables and 1:1 Map Insets. Ostensibly representing a one-hundred-mile stretch of northern Alabama, these works also expand outward to the cosmos, then inward again into the dark energy of particle physics. The exhibition will include a series of six Map Tables and one hundred 1:1 Map Insets. The show offers a tantalizing mix of technical experimentation, metaphoric expansiveness, and curiosity in every square inch. Curated by Mark Sloan, director and chief curator of the Halsey Institute, the exhibition also features a 120-page color catalogue. The exhibition will travel for several years throughout the United States after it debuts in Charleston.
