& Jim Roberts

NOMA’s March exhibition showcases the installation work of Virginia Sperry and Jim Roberts. The show, titled occupied space, will feature two separate installations, one by each artist.
Sperry’s installation, Filament, takes a common material to a new level of experience. From the detailed, abstract photography of tiny pieces of yarn to the bigger than life waterfalls made from strands of yarn hanging from the ceiling, this installation challenges the viewer’s preconceptions of this medium.
Roberts’ installation delves into the current political milieu with his work, anatomy of a lie. Showing the various stages of how a lie can take form and spread, the piece is a 3-dimensional illustration of the attacking and discrediting of factual information by laying siege to the 4th estate.
