One of the great appeals in gazing at the sky is following the passage of vaporous forms as they roil into solid towers and then dissolve into mist. Cloudlands describes, not so much this atmospheric condition, but rather a geography whose features are elusive and ethereal. In this exhibition, seven artists present structures that are not quite habitable, small worlds made up of architectural, natural and mechanical fragments, and images suggestive of things we might recognize, but ultimately evade our grasp. While the sky’s ever-shifting, nebulous phenomena echo the impermanence and changeability of the physical world, our own human nature compels us to search for moments of familiarity and reason before they – like clouds – are scattered in the wind.
