Currently on view at LAXART, Los Angeles is a solo exhibition by Sam Falls including two concurrent outdoor projects with Los Angeles Public Domain (L.A.P.D.), a public sculpture in Plummer Park and a billboard on La Cienega. For his exhibition Sam Falls includes wall works that consist of metal bars that were later used to create prototypes for the final wind chimes suspended in the gallery. Along with these wall works, the LA><ART exhibition includes wind chimes placed in national forests and parks across California: in Big Sur, Joshua Tree National Park, Redwoods National Forest, the Klamath Mountains, Lassen National Forest, Los Padres National Forest, Cleveland National Forest, Yosemite National Park, Mammouth Lakes in Inyo National Forest, Sequoia National Forest and San Bernardino National Forest. For eight months prior to the exhibition the wind chimes reverberated in the wilderness—tintinnabulations in pine coves, boulder fields, mountain ridges and coastal escarpments across the state. In the weeks and days before the opening, the artist returned to the sites listed above to retrieve the pieces.
Sam Falls is on view through December 21st, 2013.
