Tom Butter, “Host”

Visitors to Studio 10 will become active, activating viewers of Host, an eleven-foot tall kinetic sculpture by Tom Butter. The centerpiece of the artist’s second solo show with the gallery, Host commands space and attention alike as visitors set the piece into motion, then spend a stretch of time watching a grey foam cord slowly unwind from a large spool topping the central steel structure. The cord gathers on the floor in a curious, gradually mounting pile. Meanwhile, the turning ‘head’ of Host implies a kind of character — or does it? Upon interacting and spending time with Butter’s piece, visitors will have questions to ask themselves about Host’s mechanics and meanings, as well as about sculpture in general.
