SAN JOSE, CA.- The San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art is presenting a new collaboration in its evolving On The Road program – a series of curated exhibitions that are on display in venues throughout the Bay Area. Napa-based artist, Sabine Reckewell’s Double Catenary installation is on view through August 31 at “Liquid Space,” Liquid Agency’s window gallery at 451 South First Street in downtown San Jose.

Sabine Reckewell’s large-scale three-dimensional drawings in space are inspired by minimalist and conceptual art of the 1960s and ‘70s as well as her own background in design and fiber art. With modest tools – a hammer, pushpins, ribbon and a measuring tape – she creates complex geometric patterns that appear to float in mid-air. The ordinarily hard lines of these shapes are softened by the pliable property of her material and the effects of gravity. Through repetition, Reckewell is able to achieve dizzying degrees of density and transparency that ebb and flow as the viewer interacts with the piece.

Reckewell was born in Gosler, Germany and studied Industrial Design at the Institution Academy of Fine Arts in Kassel from 1970 – 1973. She received her BS in Textile Design from the University of California at Davis in 1976 and her MFA in Textile Art from Lone Mountain College in San Francisco in 1978. Her work has been exhibited in New York, Chicago and throughout California and is included in a number of corporate collections.

“As longtime friends and like-minded culture cultivators, it was simply a matter of time before Liquid and the ICA joined forces to present a tangible expression of our shared vision for developing and enriching San Jose’s contemporary art scene,” explains Cathy Kimball, ICA Executive Director. “We’re thrilled to be a part of this creative collaboration with Liquid and the uber-talented Sabine Reckewell, and we hope to keep the momentum going with more On The Road installations in the months and years to come.”

“Creativity thrives on experimentation and the Liquid Space is an experimental gallery, accessible from the street, that allows Liquid to continuously advocate for creativity and innovation in downtown San Jose,” stated Alfredo Muccino, Chief Creative Officer at Liquid Agency. “I’m particularly happy to collaborate with our friends at the ICA and artists, like Ms. Reckewell, whose installations are inspired by the space.”

The Liquid Space was pioneered in San Jose, Liquid Agency’s headquarters, and is now opening in Liquid’s Portland office located in the Pearl District. Liquid Space showcases the work of multidisciplinary artists and designers and is also used to launch pop-up retail concepts and other inventive projects.
