Through the process of building, moving, observing and rearranging, Cory Imig makes large-scale installations that explore three-dimensional space. In these installations, she responds specifically to each site allowing materials to change and dictate relationships between one another and the space itself. Intentionally, this blurs boundaries between individual pieces and brings the viewer in as a moving component of the work. Everything is active, including the space and its inhabitants.
Imig’s materials are familiar to everyday life.Some objects are found in thrift stores, dumpsters, basements or big box store clearance bins. They are ready for discard.
These sculptures are meant to question the idea of permanence and phenomenological experience.
