solo exhibition: Beginning at the End
Recology Residency Art/Studio Gallery
San Francisco, California
During her residency, Anderson Kam used the Recology San Francisco facility as back drop for her actors and recognizable areas—the sculpture garden, hillside, and Public Disposal Building are all visible in her final pieces. She has also incorporated new materials into her practice including computer paper and advertising signage, and as pastels have been harder to come by, is working with varieties of chalks and crayons. Expanding on the narrative nature of her work, she presented drawings in free-standing circular formats, enabling the viewer to walk around a piece, entering and exiting at any place, to create their own beginnings and ends.
