Long fascinated by the way in which architectural structures embrace, contain, shelter, and frame the individuals who inhabit them, Kendall Buster builds sculptures that operate both as scale models for imaginary buildings and as sites of enclosure. Buster’s initial study in microbiology and interest in the history of architecture have resulted in works informed at once by details of buildings both real and imagined and by biological morphologies. Buster is equally inspired by the monumental and microscopic.
This exhibition is curated by Executive Director & Curator Jaynelle Hazard and is the third of a series of three exhibitions marking the 50th anniversary of Tephra ICA. The exhibition highlights this important milestone in the institution’s history by examining themes of future and innovation.
