The exhibition “VESTIBULE: Plates” by an an installation artist based in Portland William Rihel III, will open at Disjecta. He is the Public Art Program Specialist for the Regional Arts and Culture Council and tends to make work that is very playful.
This installation is both dazzling and frightening. It functions as a formally beautiful group of fragile ceramic towers. At the same time it subtly mimics the rumblings of a small earthquake. Set in contrast to one another, these two readings induce anxiety in the viewer. The shear number of plates is a breathtaking spectacle to behold.
