For this year’s Terrain Biennial, Andrew Schachman: Cloudless Sky No. 1 will premiere at Landing Projects. Hosted on the back landing of my private residence, the space provides a low-fi environment for artists to play and test-balloon new ideas.
Cloudless Sky, No.1 explores the dual emotions of cheerfulness and horror.
A clear blue sky is conventionally associated with optimism. When something occurs 'out of the blue' it is an unexpected disruption of an otherwise dependable state of affairs. Meanwhile, computer simulations of climate change suggest that as the Earth's troposphere warms, the clouds may begin to thin, triggering a feedback loop of accelerated warming and destabilization until a new equilibrium forms.
Cloudless Sky, No.1 consists of a concave intense blue canvas, suspended horizontally at the top landing of a stair. Baltic birch structure, flexible plywood, epoxy resin, fluorescent and blue pigment powder, suspension system.
