On view until April 10, Lucien Terras. will be presenting Third Girl, a solo exhibition of new work by Heather Rowe. The exhibition will feature site specific ceiling installation and two freestanding sculptures that Rowe has created to explore the activation of pre-existing spatial nuances through the presence of form, conveying a narrative. The sculptures are of human scale and the physical detachment from the wall suggest a self-contained presence, with their mirrored components folding the reflections inward to an elusive center.
The title, Third Girl, refers to the title of Agatha Christie’s mystery novel that is about a quintessential triangle of suspects whose ambiguous relationships slowly come into focus while the culprit of the crime is slowly being revealed.
The freestanding sculptures that Rowe has created for the first time, complement and contrast her earlier works (wall mirrors constructed of glass shards, wood) and reclaimed frames which insist on personal negotiations with reflections and desire. Her immersive installations also reference architecture and cinema.
Rowe’s solo exhibitions include commissions for the Indianapolis Museum of Art, Indiana and UMMA/University of Michigan Museum of Art, and Ann Arbor. Her work has been featured in numerous group exhibitions including shows at PS1/MoMA, White Columns, Cincinnati Contemporary Arts Center and in 2008, in the Whitney Biennial. Currently she is part of a group show “Performing the Grid” at Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles.
