Amy Archambault (MFA '11) installs solo exhibition at 17 Cox, opening Thursday Feb 6

Amy Archambault's site specific installation inside 17 Cox is part obstacle course, part habitrail and part modular home. As both a lacrosse coach and a studio supervisor, Archambault is interested in combining the human drive for athleticism and artistic expression, and encouraging others to do the same in her work. Her installation turns 17 Cox into an arena for both spectatorship and participation. Visitors can either observe her bright, colorful constructions as sculpture or take off their shoes and participate in the various obstacles. The palette for this installation is based on color psychology used in modern workout facilities where colors can promote productivity or increase heart rate. Multiple pathways through the gallery are designed for different levels of engagement and Archambault includes demonstration videos of her performances. Visitors will be encouraged to "work out" in the gallery during the exhibition, and even submit their scores in a time trial during the March 6 reception.
