The film is set to a soundtrack composed by AC/DC and was nominated for two 1986 Golden Raspberry awards, including Worst Director for Stephen King and Worst Actor for Emilio Estevez.

Thursday August 21 - Saturday September 13 2014

Garret Gould, Rubber Chicken, 2014.
GRIN, 60 Valley St, Unit #3, Providence, RI
TTTRIP: A Group Exhibition featuring Garret Gould, Claudia O'Steen and Sophia SobersGRIN is pleased to present tttrip., a group exhibition of installation and sculpture by artists Claudia O’Steen, Garret Gould, and Sophia Sobers.

A trip is a form of disconnection and an experience of time. Whether referring to the tripping of a circuit or a ride in an airplane, a trip brings about a drastic change to the subject and it’s surroundings. The work in tttrip. explores the various aspects of the word through visual, physical, conceptual experiences.

Claudia O’Steen’s work exhibits both analog and digital forms of communication alongside their inability to compose the intended outcome. Through the position of altered and handmade objects, O’Steen places the utmost importance on the hand of the artist as well as the potential relationship it creates with the viewer. Elements such as extension cords wrapped and painted provide an alternate route for the viewers’ experience with the work — often leading them to a new conclusion or a destination.

Garret Gould provides a subtle playfulness in the journey of the viewer. With a propensity for humor and the anatomy of "the joke", Gould’s sculptures suggest a hesitation before comprehension, which ultimately creates an interpretive interaction.

Sophia Sobers’ installations in tttrip. reference the displacement of objects and the presence they hold in their surrogate environments. Sobers’ works are representations and documentations of her meditative practice - attempting to achieve a more intimate connection with nature and her environment. Sobers aims for a better understanding of the ephemerality of the natural world parallel to her place within it.
