GARRICK IMATANI Garrick Imatani’s (Djerassi, 2015; Ucross, 2016) work responds to the complex- ities of race, placemaking, and political history. His process frequently stems from research, site visits and collaboration, resulting in sculptures, installations, drawings, photographs, videos, and public projects that use the language of slow-moving performance and constructed landscape to find their form. Imatani’s work has been exhibited at Art in General, Asian American Arts Centre, Incident Report, and the Queens Museum, New York, NY; the Schneider Museum of Art, Ashland, OR; White Box at the University of Oregon, Portland; Ditch Projects, Springfield, OR; as well as the Portland Museum of Art in Maine. He received an MFA from Columbia University and a BA from the University of California at Santa Barbara. “I was able to access a part of my thinking and process from an emotional and psycholog- ical space that is so difficult to achieve in day-to-day life. The cross-disciplinary interaction (especially with dancer/composer Keith Johnson) was the most fruitful and engaging part of the residency experience. I was grateful to go running on groomed trails — it was therapeutic being out in the woods alone while moving my body with a sense that I could easily return to a collective space.” Above: A Broken Tower – sculpture, 2016, Wood, acrylic, 96” x 21” x 21” Right: A Broken Tower – The Veil, 2016, Acrylic on panel, concrete, string, eye screws, variable size
