SAN ANTONIO, TX ?ewed through Artpace’s Main Avenue windows, Randy Wallace’s Unsettlement
exposes the interior of a log cabin in which something has gone awry. Using sculpture, set design, and mixed media, Wallace’s installation is reminiscent of a scene from a Grimm Brothers’ fairytale?oreboding fantasy world ruled by a dire moral reality. Throughout the run of the exhibition the interior cabin scene will change as if items are disturbed by an unseen drama unfolding within. Enchantment awaits passersby and Artpace visitors at Wallace’s ever-changing installation.
