Museum Blue

Water Water

Museum Blue presents a collaborative installation from Allison Lacher and Jeff Robinson: Water. Water. The artists assemble domestic materials such as vinyl, carpet, insulation, wood, and ribbons to create a glimmering maritime scene. The work exudes both adolescent daydream and seafaring adventure, though its central feature, a raft-like structure suspended on a platform, is entirely static and trapped within the tiny interior. Upsetting the optimistic appearance of blues, yellows, sparkling and reflective surfaces, is the dread of the doldrums, of stagnation and claustrophobia which can occur even on the open sea. Water. Water. puts youthful hope in a situation of imminent failure, of being too big and too stuck, a situation that produces a glamorous delirium.
