In a new series of sculptures for The Pink Building titled “Corner Stone”, Molly Welch packs concrete into the wall-to floor corners along the perimeter of the exhibition space, to cast an arris. Breaks in the footprint of the room made by door openings define individual sculptures, which are then lifted up off the floor to lean against walls, teeter, and jut out into the room. The spatial relationship of the sculptures to the room that made them is a three dimensional puzzle the artist sets up for the viewer. The viewer is invited to look at and consider (literally) every corner of the room so the space becomes, in part, a subject of the sculptures.
Molly Welch is a 2001 graduate of The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art and lives and works in Brooklyn NY.
