GABRIELLE DUGGAN – Artist Talk + Walkthrough
January 8, 2016 @ 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Gabrielle Duggan has completed her residency at Ponyride and her installation is complete! We invite you to see it on Friday evening and learn about her and everything she has done during her stay here.
Duggan was funded through the Applebaum Family Compass Fund and The Knight Foundation. She has been working at Ponyride for one month.
Building on and expanding techniques rooted in traditional fiber work, Gabrielle Duggan creates elaborate installations of disparate materials; glass, tar, rocks, wire, yarn, wood, paint, found objects, and other textiles. She is drawn to materials of the natural and industrial worlds, and values a connection to animals through researching fiber production (sheering, spinning, and hand constructing cloth). Her installations and performance pieces challenge traditional gender expressions, labor value systems, and address larger social issues through the use of tension, repetition, and by twisting the multiple meanings imbued in the material itself.
Gabrielle Duggan was born in Buffalo, New York and earned her Master of Art and Design in Fibers and Surface Design from North Carolina State University.
