In 2014, Amy Stacey Curtis presented “Matter,” her eight solo-biennial exhibit of interactive installation. “Matter” consisted of nine participatory works installed over 24,000 square feet of Parsonsfield, Maine’s Robinson Mill. Each of the nine installations was accompanied by instructions where the audience was challenged to activate, perpetuate, and/or complete Curtis’ concepts in specific ways.
In conjunction with the exhibition, Curtis made 18 drawings, rendering the outlines of all the matter in her home, including herself (any object at least 1/8″ [including individual food items, i.e. each pea, cracker, ice cube, etc]). The objects are organized by their room/location at their time of drawing. The drawings on view represent 104,564 objects in 18 spaces.
