Glenn Herbert Davis’s new work VALUE will premiere at Living Arts on January 3, 2014. VALUE is an immersive and subversive installation comprised of both low cost and high value materials. Using the Living Arts gallery as a base, the structure will be fabricated on site and developed to fit and connect specifically within the space. The large forms will be constructed of lightweight lumber frames skinned with translucent polyethylene. They will mimic the character of temporary enclosures and will be accessible for audiences to move through.  Davis will give a performance in the environment at the end of the exhibit.

Davis’ work examines issues of the individual human body and the contrived systems to which it is subjected. VALUE will combine and morph subjects concerning material handling, housing, entertainment and religious forms.

GLENN DAVIS BIO
Davis teaches for the Art Institute of Pittsburg; was Gallery Director and taught at the University of Tulsa, Ohio University, and Iowa State University. He received an OVAC Project Grant in 2010, an OVAC Fellowship in both 2010 and 2006, and Jerome Foundation grants in 1998 and 1996.
His work examines issues of the individual human body and the (contrived) systems to which it is subject; with ongoing interests in: the perversion of knowledge through its descent and its display; physical labor / craft as locus of both skill and strife; the institution; function and utility; valuation; and (the) "other".
