Opening Friday, January 10th at Ratio 3, San Francisco is “3:43,” a solo exhibition of new work by Mitzi Pederson. Pederson has worked continuously in the gallery space for several weeks, turning rudimentary materials into a complete installation. The resulting works bring Pederson’s unique sensibility into dialogue with time and its effects on a given space. Continuing her exploration of deceptively simple arrangements, Pederson creates elegant objects that combine contradictory gestures. In several works, the fluidity and lightness of fabric contrasts with the tension of bowed lumber. Other works combine Pederson’s interest in ephemerality with her intuitive sense of weight and permanence – strips of fabric draped over beams and blocks of concrete seem to vanish depending on vantage point and time of day.


Opening Reception: Friday, January 10th, 2014. 6-8pm.


“3:43” is on view through February 15th, 2014.
