Faculty Member Ryan Burghard Exhibits at Portland Pataphysical Society

May 30, 2018

OCAC faculty member Ryan Burghard will be showing his work in an upcoming exhibit entitled Whatever Hour You Woke at the Portland Pataphysical Society. The exhibit runs June 7 - July 13, 2018, with an opening reception on Thursday, June 7, 6:00-8:00pm.

Whatever hour you woke is a collection of new work that explores notions of time and duration through the traces, marks and imprints that remain in our absence. 

At first glance we are presented with familiar objects arranged in a seemingly incidental manner. But Burghard’s slight material alterations and attention to the physical space imbue what we perceive as common with a poetic and emotive sensibility. Each work acts as an open metaphor for the fundamental aspects of our human condition and each trace questions the undeniable reality of presence.

The Portland Pataphysical Society is a social club that hosts performances and exhibitions in an alternative arts space within the Everett Station Lofts in downtown Portland, OR. For more information on the ehbition, please click here.
