MAEP: Austin Swearengin

Exhibition Website

Jul 21 2016 - Oct 30 2016

Austin Swearengin’s sculptural practice focuses on understanding design and its implementation through semiotics, or the analysis of language, gestures, and objects as they relate to one another. Familiar objects are positioned in a space between utilitarian purpose and poetic intention, much as a billboard can be seen as both an architectural body and a space for communication. The design and functionality of these objects also become platforms for poetic inscription and potential audience participation.
