Common Language exhibits work by West Texas artists Suzi Davidoff and Rachelle Thiewes, collaborating together as Razi Projects. Spanning Finland and West Texas, Common Language consists of site-specific land-based installations documented by large scale photographs printed on aluminum, a twin-screen video projection, and a limited edition, hand bound artist book housed in a portfolio containing an original artwork.
In addition to this monumental collaboration, the exhibition includes individual works on paper and sculptural kinetic jewelry by Davidoff and Thiewes, respectively.
A special viewing of the Common Languages twin-screen projection will take place throughout the evening of the Artist’s Reception.
Suzi Davidoff’s multi-media works on paper explore themes of structure and perception of the natural world, often incorporating found organic materials collected on walks within the West Texas Chihuahuan desert.
Rachelle Thiewes creates jewelry that is designed to engage and challenge the wearer, making them an active participant, an initiator of sounds and body rhythms.
