What: Liminalscape Study: SOMArts + Environs by Heidi Lubin
When: September 26–October 14, 2012
Where: The Ramp Gallery, a community curated space at 934 Brannan St. (between 8th and 9th)
“My interest in creating site specific installations is to bring visibility to the invisible and to recognize site as an intersection of complex sociopolitical factors. SOMArts is located in a sort of liminal space, an in-between space, under large freeway structures and in a constantly changing, dynamic SOMA. By integrating images that are sourced directly from SOMArts and its environs, I attempt to bring the outside inside through reference to the actual site in which the building is situated.” —Heidi Lubin
Heidi Lubin is an mixed media artist working primarily in installation. From source material gathered through photographs, video, and object findings from urban and suburban sites, she creates a re-imagination of the elusive, often invisible systems located there. Lubin’s practice embodies the philosophy that being in a place is a reflexive construction between site and experience. Lubin received her Bachelors of Arts from Scripps College in Organizational Studies with an emphasis in Studio and Community Art. She is a second year Master of Fine Arts student at the California College of the Arts. More of her work can be viewed on her website at www.heidilubin.com.
