Andrew Fallat: Echolalia
February 3 – 25, 2011

Gallery4Culture welcomes sculptor and performance artist Andrew Fallat in a solo exhibition titled Echolalia. The word echolalia typically refers to a psychiatric disorder consisting of the compulsive, meaningless repetition of words or phrases, akin to parroting. Fallat’s sculptures are sleek, kinetic machines, hand-operated to perform specific (but silly) tasks.

This exhibition features 2 new machines – one (a remake of an earlier design) spins plates; the second skips stones. The fabrication of Fallat’s stone skipping machine was supported with GAP funding from Artist Trust.

Fallat will demonstrate his machines during the First Thursday opening, February 3.
An additional Performance/Artist Talk is set for Thursday, February 17, at 7:00 P.M. These events are free and open to the public.
