Alicia Basinger: Replicas
Now on View
Monday-Friday 11 AM – 6 PM, Saturday 11 AM – 5 PM
Kirkland Arts Center, Kirkland
4Culture Individual Artist Projects recipient, Alicia Basinger recently installed Replicas, a light installation that utilizes the entire ceiling space of the Kirkland Art Center’s main staircase entrance. This structure consists of thousands of white cylinders of various sizes dipped into acrylic and sewn together. The result of this process is an architectural form that resembles a chaotic hand built honeycomb. Each cylinder or cell stores light. As a novice beekeeper Basinger takes inspiration from her visual experiences while working in the hive. She is also interested in the fusion between functional and sculptural aspects of a light structure. Replicas will act as a hybrid between contemporary commercial minimalist light structures and architectural elements that Basinger currently employs in her sculptural work.

Theatre Off Jackson, Seattle
4Culture Individual Artist Project recipient, Keri Healey has completed her new full-length play which explores grief, revenge, and the surprising capacity for violence that lives within even the “nicest” people. Steeped in sadness after the wrongful death of her sister, Seattleite Daphne Maas learns that a childhood friend has been arrested for a shocking crime back in her family’s midwestern hometown. Daphne sets off on a desperate trek to find out what happened and why and along the way, finds that her own longing for the settling of scores can’t be ignored.
