TONIGHT at Collision Collusion at 8pm jun 16th, Erica von Schilgen will present a DVD of her recent sculptures. These works are playful inventions, delightful toy machines... a series of mechanical collages, built into boxes, and powered by hand cranks, music boxes, or motors.
Erica's sculptures are whimsical and lyrical, sometimes humorous, but with an underlying sense of melancholy and nostalgia. Interacting with her works is often an unpredictable and magical experience where the viewer gets to step into a place of childlike discovery.
Her work was recently exhibited at the Filament Gallery in Portland Maine, she was a featured artist for MOOVLAB high defintiton television station, (having her worked filmed in high definition and nationally broadcasted,) and she also participated in the first two Collision shows (showcasing her dancing dolls, which some of you may remember.)
