From the Dirt: Corin Hewitt

Since 2007 Corin Hewitt has produced a series of evolving works that blend sculpture, photography, and performance. The most recent of these appeared at the Laurel Gitlin Gallery in New York last year, and a new iteration is scheduled to open at the Cleveland Museum of Contemporary Art in January 2013. In each installation, Hewitt performs inside an enclosed space (part studio, part laboratory), creating sculptural objects that feed into a body of still-life photographs. Although distinct, the works—which take their cues from the site and region in which they are performed—are conceptually linked. Each builds on and integrates elements from preceding projects, drawing on a continuously growing, idiosyncratic vocabulary of forms, materials, and colors…see the entire article in the print version of May’s Sculpture magazine.
