The Portland Building’s latest installation space is a visually stunning geographical piece of garbage.
Talented local artists Tyler Corbett and Erinn Kathryn are a collaborative team who address geography though a variety of art mediums. They spend time studying topographical maps, aerial photography, satellite data, and even hike, to understand a specific area, which is then interpreted into a wonderfully ornate and unique art piece.
For their installation, FMRL, Tyler and Erinn spent a year scouring the streets of Portland’s inner city for bits of refuse. Those pieces of garbage, which are in the thousands, decorate the walls of the installation space, and form a radiant and beautiful network of pathways and trails.
The Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC) sponsors the Installation Art Series. Selected through a juried process, each installation questions common perspectives through art.
FMRL runs through March 11 in the Portland Building’s lobby. Check out RACC’s website for more information.
