Jack Straw New Media Gallery

Lean-out, Lean-to
An installation by Zack Bent

November 14, 2014 - February 6, 2015

Artist Talk: Friday, Dec. 12, 7pm

Jack Straw New Media Gallery
4261 Roosevelt Way NE
Seattle 98105

Lean-out, Lean-to was triggered by an encounter with an inventive truck canopy turned shed in a quiet neighborhood in Spokane. The multi-media installation revolves around a sculptural interpretation of that make-shift shed as a monolithic chamber of secrets. Through stop-motion animations of enigmatic and obscured landscapes and recordings of animal mimicry, distress, and song, the Jack Straw New Media Gallery will be altered into a stage set for a forgotten story.

See our New Media Gallery page for more information.
