Big Science

Site Specific Installation

acrylic on canvas, paper, balloons,

tape and video projections


The installations of Ali Woods are a striving for harmony and common ground among disparate materials almost under oath to not cooperate with each other. There is tension among everything, and yet a unified containment is already in order. A strange sameness exists in each ingredient because of the strength of the components against which they are fundamentally clashing. In this regard, her installation work delivers a visual meditation on paradox as a thing enjoyable as it is inescapable.
