"Minus Space: Lead Pencil Studio"
2005-08-20 until 2005-11-20
Henry Art Gallery, University of Washington
Seattle, WA, USA United States of America

In their architectural practice and conceptual installation projects, Annie Han and Daniel Mihalyo, who collaborate as Lead Pencil Studio, explore the relationships between architectural space and land use. The Henry Art Gallery's 1997 expansion sought to reconcile several existing alignments evident on the western edge of the University of Washington campus. The largest gesture involved a major excavation, which established the floor of the museum 25 feet below existing grade in order to maintain views and pedestrian passage above. Reviewing the history of construction on this site, the artists were interested in how the Henry's site has been reshaped through generations of half-completed master plans.

Minus Space recreates the lines of the virgin site conditions through the current architectural space. The sloped plane of the reformulated grade will span the full dimensions of the gallery and extend into the exterior courtyard, permitting viewers to experience the installation from a variety of vantage points.

Adjacent to this ambitious installation will be a mini-survey of Lead Pencil Studio’s additional creative architectural projects, photographic series, and installation works, providing the first examination of their creative work within and between aesthetic categories.
