ABOUT “TERMINAL VELOCITY” EXHIBITION
“Through this new work, I continue my exploration of mapping and marking place, addressing the shifting, contradicting, and sometime absurd sentiment of centeredness,” the artist, Gregor Turk, states. “Obelisks and x-marks constructed of wood and wrapped with rubber serve as the primary forms in this exhibition with several works focusing on Atlanta’s own center points, its interstate interchanges.”
“This exhibition debuts our 2011/2012 group of Working Artist Project artists, marking our 4th year of supporting local artists through the WAP awards program,” states MOCA GA Director, Annette Cone-Skelton. “Gregor Turk’s exhibition combines his love of maps and his lifelong observance of Atlanta to focus in a new way on geographical elements that we encounter without thinking every day in our city.”
