For Rim’s Edge, Christine Rebhuhn will create sculptural objects that explore the absurdities of word play translated into physical form. Her work misaligns mundane and peripheral objects, finding an uncanny juncture where things iterate each other formally. By uncoupling objects from their reliance on function and reassigning meaning, Rebhuhn allows the absurd to be a dominant form of communication.

“Laughter, as one of humanity’s most sumptuous extravagances, even to the point of debauchery, stands at the lip of the void, offers us the void as a pledge”– Pierre Piobb, Les Mysteres des dieux (Paris, 1936)

Illogical pairings allow a more intricate narrative to be discovered through language, unbinding structure with a tireless comedic sensibility. The work becomes both a play on form, and a play on words. Rebhuhn transforms meaning by knitting together the unexpected.

Christine Rebhuhn currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. Rebhuhn received her MFA in ceramics at Cranbrook Academy of Art and her BA in studio art and psychology at Kalamazoo College. She has exhibited nationally and internationally including Korea Ceramic Foundation in Incheon, Korea, Cranbrook Art Museum and recently at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. She has also been selected for numerous residency programs including Elsewhere, NARS Foundation, and The Vermont Studio Center. This will be her first exhibition in Minnesota.

This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
