Upcoming Solo Exhibition and Studio News
"This Must Be The Place" a solo project at the Beeler Gallery at the Columbus College of Art and Design opening September 7th and running through October 29th.
Kim Faler: 'This Must Be the Place' features a video and sound installation that is a large-scale projection of a very small moment.
Based on the Mary Oliver poem I Go Down to the Shore, the piece begins with the slow drip of water, amplified in scale and projected across multiple wall constructions that lean against and interrupt the gallery space, asking the viewer to navigate in and around this false architecture. As the water rises and falls within the gallery, the emotions of both anticipation and release are pressed against one another in a cyclical pattern, slowly creating a sense of beauty within the continual turbulence.
Many thanks to Michael Goodson and Ian Ruffino for their trust and support and Mike Formanski, Curt Wells and Brad Dilger for their technical knowhow.
I'll be giving an artist talk in Columbus on September 14th at 6:30 at the Cazani Center on the CCAD campus. Hope to see you there!
"You Don't Know My Horizon" an exhibition that began at Artpace in San Antonio, Texas last year, travels and expands at the David Winton Bell Gallery at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island with an opening reception on Friday, June 9th, from 5:30-7:30pm.
This is the largest collection of work from the studio spanning from 2007 to 2017, including a performance piece and a new site-specific installation exploring touch with cast crystal.
Special thanks to curators Ian Alden Russell & Denise Markonish's for their faith and ability to see the future, the Glass Department at the Rhode Island School of Design for supporting the production of new work, Cindy del Rio for her technical expertise, Artpace, The New England Journal of Medicine, Mad Dog Studios and Hare & Hound Press for their on-going support.
A Solo Exhibition entitled "Excuse Me" is also on view at LaMontagne Gallery, May 1st to July1st at the gallery's new location in Winchester, MA. It includes a suite of new prints made of flocked graphite and mica on clear Mylar, made in Hare and Hound Press.
The gallery notes: these prints move in-and-out of focus, and shimmer with reflected light. Originally conceived along the Southern, Texas shoreline, Faler has shifted the horizontal movement of the ocean onto a vertical axis, asking the viewer to see the in-and-out breath of the ocean as a means to fill a void. Mary Oliver’s poem “I Go Down to the Shore” inspired the title of the work:
I go down to the shore in the morning
and depending on the hour the waves
are rolling in or moving out,
and I say, oh, I am miserable,
what should I do? And the sea says
in its lovely voice:
Excuse me, I have work to do.
 “I Go Down to the Shore” by Mary Oliver from A Thousand Mornings: Poems (New York: Penguin Books; Reprint edition, 2013), p. 1.

New England Talent to Watch in 2016
Solo Exhibition at
Gridspace in Brooklyn, NY. Exhibition runs November 15- Dec 13th, 2015
Moving directly off the grid- Faler creates a site-specific installation that challenges the notions of permanence, and fabricating a sense of place or home. She introduces large fragments of architecture that abut the functional gallery walls. A watercolor-based wallpaper pattern runs across the space- moving in and out of focus and dripping down the wall into an electric blue puddle on the floor. Cast porcelain rocks line the edge or property line of the gallery. Portions of the rocks are shattered- illuminating a dream-like loss of functionality or purpose.
A small series of pencil drawings on porcelain accompany the installation.
I was recently featured in The Take Magazine. I speak with Lauren Clark about my work, my recent residency at the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation in Captiva Florida, and what it is like to live & work in the Berkshires.
