Barbara Kaucky / Group XII, Apr 01 - Sept 01
9/21/01 to 10/28/01
MAK Center for Art and Architecture L.A at the Schindler House, 835 North Kings Road, West Hollywood, CA
The exhibition offered a multiplicity of viewpoints for regarding the Los Angeles cityscape as seen in the work of David Hullfish Bailey, Kaucyila Brooke, Robbert Flick, Barbara Kaucky, Richard Sparham and Elizabeth Hesik, Dorit Margreiter, Florian Pumhösl and Martha Stutteregger, and Michael Wildmann. Just as each individual’s perspective is unique and no single outlook tells the whole story, the exhibition title, 20/35 Vision—the average of each contributor’s eyesight—represented the un-ideal vision of any singular view of the city.
Barbara Kaucky, Richard Sparham, and Elizabeth Hesik presented an installation with videos that documented their survey in planned communities in Southern California. The artists focused on Ladera Ranch in Orange County, Slab City near the Salton Sea, and Valencia in the Santa Clarita Valley. This architectural and anthropological investigation was documented in the form of travelogues, videos of installations created at the sites, and, eventually, a book.
