The Eye of The Crowd
July 31, 1992 - August 29th, 1992
Opening Reception: 6-8pm, July 31, 1992.
In Greg Adair’s installation The Eye of The Crowd, the viewer is placed in the midst of a tense situation: large panes of glass lean against the walls, hundred of steel pipes cover the floor, canes for the visually impaired rest behind the glass. The setting is ripe of violence. Yet, everything rests silently. The Eye of The Crowd thrusts the viewer into the center of a potential storm of group action but it does so ambiguously. The work draws its power from the tension between observation and action. The ‘Eye’ here stands not only for sight but for reason. It is a cold confrontation between intellect and action.
