Carolyn Healy + John Phillip
A century-old former stables in Belltown with its original wooden truss ceiling and plank floor, has become a major local showcase for installation art. The gallery, called Suyama Space, is the project of a local architectural firm, and shares part of their office. This summer’s exhibition, a meditation on light and structure by Philadelphia artists Carolyn Healy and John Phillips, has just opened after five weeks of installation. Joining us to talk about this piece is KUOW art critic, Gary Faigin.
From what I can gather from the artist’s website, the Suyama installation is quite different in nature from many of their earlier pieces: dark, complicated-looking agglomerations of metallic found objects bombarded by flashy, colored video projections, installed in indoor settings where the only light was that the artists provided.
