"Prison" by Peter Halley

2012

For Jenene Nagy's Curator in Residence final exhibition, Peter Halley created a site-specific installation at Disjecta entitled Prison. The show represents Halley's first solo exhibition in the Pacific Northwest and continues his decades-long interest in architecture by creating a seductive, continuous image that wraps around the perimeter of the gallery space. Halley unites visual and architectural systems to create an immersive experience that weds the "geometry of the social" with the mall-level transcendence of saturated fluorescent color. The result is an exhibition that creates tension between silence and noise that resonates long past our presence in the physical space.
