Project Atrium: Maud Cotter
An acclaimed artist, both in her homeland Ireland and internationally, Cotter is best known for her sculptural installations. Although her early work used glass and steel, in recent years Cotter has turned to other man-made materials such as cardboard, industrial rubber and clear plastic, as well as wood, to create the three-dimensional works through which she explores our definitions and boundaries, both physical and mental, of material form and space.
For her new commissioned project for MOCA's Project Atrium Series, what was never ours to keep, Cotter responds to the spectacular 40 foot tall Atrium Space with an installation that continues her probe into our relationship with matter, and the forces that govern this relationship; in this case, gravity.
This exhibition was on view at MOCA Jacksonville July-November 2022.
