Mark Garry

We Cast Shadows

12 July – 24 August 2014

City Gallery at Waterfront Park, Charleston SC

The City of Charleston Office of Cultural Affairs presents We Cast Shadows; New Work by Mark Garry. The artist will transform the exhibition space with an installation of new works and ephemera created for the site. Utilizing a variety of media and mechanisms, Garry's delicately considered works are measured and quiet, requiring meticulous systems of construction. Combining physical, visual and sensory analogues, the installation arranges elements that intersect the space and form relationships between a given room and each other, creating a situation that is at once empathetic and spectacular.


Music plays a large part of Mark’s practice, and the exhibition will include listening posts so that patrons can experience his recording projects, A Generous Act and Sending Letters to the Sea.

This eagerly anticipated exhibition will be on view beginning Saturday, July 12, with a preview and reception with the artist on Thursday, July 10 from 5 to 7 pm. These events are free and open to the public.

We Cast Shadows is Mark’s fourth solo exhibition of 2014. The title of this exhibition refers to the manner in which cultural and social legacies are retained by a society. Mark is making a number of interventions in the gallery, including light works, ambitious thread constructions, and wall drawings, photos, and sculptures.
