COLLISION17:transformer assembles a wide range of new work from 6 countries to explore the notion of transformation. Power, signal, material and meaning are altered, recast and impedance-matched to underscore and harmonize with the ceaseless change of our lives. Curated by COLLISIONcollective members William Tremblay and Georgina Lewis, COLLISION17:transformer is the seventeenth COLLISIONcollective show and the sixth held at Axiom. The 22 works that comprise the show span sculpture, photography, video, surveillance, interactivity and research, making this the most comprehensive and far-reaching COLLISIONcollective show to date.

A transformer is a device that changes one form of energy to a different form, then changes it back to an altered version of the original. In COLLISION17:transformer we present the artist as transformer of experience though metaphor, translator of ideas between language modes, and transmuter of physical phenomena into forms optimized for human perception.

Included in the show is work by Natalie Andrew, Ryan Boatright, W. Benjamin Bray, Sophia Brueckner, Alicia Eggert, Juan Escudero, Joseph Farbrook, Antony Flackett, Ben K. Foley, Dave Gordon, Rob Gonsalves, Lori Hepner, Wei-Ming Ho, Faith Holland, Annette Isham, Arnold Koroshegyi, Victor Liu, Andrew Neumann, Bob Kephart, Jean-Michel Rolland, Mark Stock, Wayne Strattman and Topp & Dubio.

Wow.


Just wow. That's what I can say about the opening night of COLLISION17:transformer. It was an incredible turnout for an incredible show.  Thanks to all who came and saw the show, to the artists who shared their insights and labors, and to AXIOM without which none of this could have happened. So, wow. 

-Bill.
