MPA@ChainBridge: Erratic Landscapes: New Works by Artemis Herber

Working with the humble material of recycled corrugated cardboard, German-born, Maryland-based artist Artemis Herber creates massive depictions of space and place. Devoid of people, the works insist on viewer interaction. They strongly suggest a possibly risky entrance into her imagined hybrid environments of abandoned cities threatening clouds, distant horizons, and eternal twilight.  These are places that reside within the realm of what Herber describes as “alienated poetry” and to view them is to experience a place that hovers somewhere between the past, present and future.
