Exhibition Curator: Roberto Muffoletto
The work of Biff Henrich’s “The Structure of Things” include two portfolios that invite us to consider, as the exhibition title suggests, structure. On closer consideration Biff Henrich's work moves beyond a structuralist critique to questions addressing the construction of meanings and context.
In his exhibition introduction Biff Henrich invites the viewer (or reader of the visual text) of the two portfolios included in the exhibition to construct their own meanings and understandings. Taking the raw visual material, the image, as the starting point, meaning is understood as a subjective and creative process. From this position, there is no meaning until the reader says there is. From this perspective the authority of the text lies within the interaction of the reader and their experience.
Biff Henrich, a Buffalo New York (USA) artist has a rich exhibition record along with two National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships.
