The Maitland Institute is a not-for-profit art space offering artists-in-residence an opportunity to experiment. In particular, the space, once a former casings factory, with its soaring height and vast volume, offers artists a different scale than that of their most normal artist studio space.
Jared Ginsburg is the current artist-in-residence. His practice is grounded in the use of art povera materials and experimenting to draw out the latent possibilities of everyday materials as art objects and materials. Ginsburg began his Maitland residency by trying to translate ink drawing into three-dimensional space. This soon became exercises in composition in and of themselves. The result is a series of sculptural drawings composed of bamboo, rubber and string suspended in the space, “Hanging Drawings”. Taken together these drawings result in an immersive installation. The series is ongoing and the installation will continue to change.
