Unconditional Silence

Pattern and Membrane Recent Sculpture by Therese Zemlin

April 23 - June 1

Therese Zemlin will exhibit her newest sculptures that focus on ideas of organic form. "Therese Zemlin: Unconditional Silence: Pattern and Membrane Recent Sculpture" will be exhibited April 23-June 1 at the Simmons College Trustman Art Gallery, fourth floor Simmons Main Campus Building, 300 The Fenway. A reception from 4:30-6:30 p.m. April 26 will include a gallery talk at 5 p.m.

Zemlin's remarkable paper and motorized sculptures are based on organic forms and the artist's explorations of pattern, natural phenomena, and culture. Combining scanned images and three-dimensional paper objects with kinetic elements, the artist creates unique forms which have been called "biomorphic bellows". Using a method of construction related to collapsible Japanese Gifu Lanterns, Zemlin's sculptures are simultaneously post-industrial and natural.
