Sift/Sieve (Undermine) is created by Elspeth A Schulze, 2021 and are perforated sandbags. Sandbags are often used as a measure of control- used together usually to hold back water. They are often stacked like bricks to serve unified purpose. By spreading them along the landscape it undermines their collective control.

Elspeth Schulze’s project for The Space(s) Between is Sift/Sieve (Undermine), 2021, perforated sandbags, sand. This work is also on view at Vicki Myhren Gallery in Denver.

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

This multi-site and multi-project exhibition samples contemporary artists exploring various understandings of how we experience the vastness of place and the iconic nature of the American West. Notions of the horizon as a convention through which we orient ourselves in relation to the landscape are central to the concept.

Uniquely this exhibit allows for both indoor and outdoor art experiences, Ent Center for the Arts is one of six sites to explore this exhibit featuring nearly 50 contemporary artists. We suggest you begin here with the Marie Walsh Sharpe Gallery of Contemporary Art, Friday through Sunday 12pm-6pm, registration encouraged but drop-ins are welcome. Explore the other sites of this state wide exhibit.

The Space(s) Between is a collaborative exhibition between two university art galleries - the University of Colorado Colorado Springs’ Galleries of Contemporary Art and the University of Denver’s Vicki Myhren Gallery. The exhibit is curated by artistic director and chief curator Daisy McGowan, along with Donald Fodness, and Geoffrey Shamos.
