"Interventions and Objects"

 Con-flict, Bebe Beard, site-specific installation detail


Interventions and Objects: New Work by Bebe Beard and Liz Nofziger is at the gallery at the New England School of Art & Design, 75 Arlington St., Feb. 14 through March 15, 2008.

Video/installation artists Beard and Nofziger have created new, site-specific works in the gallery space for this show. The artists, working separately yet sharing the same space, transform the viewers’ perception of the gallery experience, adding a sense of play along with a rethinking of how space is used.

Meet the artists

There will be a reception with the artists from 6-8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 14. A gallery talk will be held at 1 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 26.

Nofziger is known for creating intimate experiences by incorporating objects such as miniature figurines and tiny video monitors into hidden and obscured spaces, bringing attention to otherwise overlooked details in the architecture of a space and forcing the viewer to look in a new way. She further plays with this sense of space and scale by balancing her miniatures with larger video projections to create an immersing experience for the viewer.

Beard presents a multi-channel, room-sized video projection and mobile sculptures enhanced by a soundtrack that reacts to viewers as they move through the gallery. The moving sculptures’ shadows add further depth and layering to the images on the walls.
