Tim Berg and Rebekah Myers: On the Bright Side...


  • Faulconer Gallery, Grinnell College 1115 8th Avenue Grinnell, IA 50112

In a global cultural exchange routinely reduced to seconds-long sound bites and rapid-fire images, we often refer to "shiny objects" as those rare things that focus or capture our attention for a moment or two longer than usual. Tim Berg and Rebekah Myers, an artists' collaborative in Claremont, California, explore this phenomenon in their sculpture, casting everyday objects and animals in unexpected ways that provoke questions of materiality, surplus and rarity, and the consequences of 21st-century cultural consumers' desires.
