Disjecta Interdisciplinary Art Center is pleased to present Score. a new installation by Portland-based artist Avantika Bawa. Score. explores the making, breaking and rearranging of rules, strategies, structures and histories. Examining the past use of Disjecta’s building, Bawa amplifies the working mechanism and occasional failures of systems through the creation of an abstract and altered Bowling Alley. The alley serves as a setting in which the past is made present, architectural nuances of the space are highlighted and our current economic state is painfully glorified. For Score. Bawa creates a perfect yet playful distortion through an engagement with the architecture and location of the space. This approach is heightened through the use of colors and materials that complement the geographic landscape while retaining a loud silence.
