“E8: Sculpture”

Washington, DC


In 2004, Transformer launched its “Exercise” program—a peer critique and mentorship program culminating in short exhibitions for participating artists. As last year’s roster attested, the program continues to thrive as a dynamic incubator. In successive offerings, Oreen Cohen, Lindsay Rowinski, and Sean Lundgren mounted distinct and thought-provoking interpretations of the space. All three engineered big and bold interventions that, true to the gallery’s name, transformed limited cubic footage into a mind-expanding venue. On first impression, Cohen’s Running Drill resembled a giant cruciform hoisted onto the gallery’s central beam. Ending in a baptismal font-like basin, the sculpture gave way to clay soil on the floor below…see the entire review in the print version of September’s Sculpture magazine.
