“I am Still An Animal”: A Conversation with Geoffrey Gorman
SOFA CHICAGO VIP Lounge
1:30 pm 05-Nov-2011
Geoffrey Gorman creates a strange menagerie of fanciful, found-object animals. Listen as he discusses the process of discovering and working with found materials including sticks, rusted screws, washers, bicycle tires, old tools, bailing wire and discarded canvas, his inspirations and influences, and the mythology behind the ‘lives’ of his curious creatures. An intense physical process goes into the making of each one as they are constructed of many layers of different found materials. Gorman’s works are in the permanent collections of numerous museums as well as in national and international private collections.
