Signal Hill

Artist: Shannon Ebner
Gallery: Altman Siegel
Exhibition Dates: January 7 - February 13, 2010

According to Ebner..."the Signal Hill I am referring to does not exist - but in titling the show by that name I am speaking to a false romantic, an indeterminate place outside where signals can roam or be broken, a place where an individual can fall out of circulation or where mobility and transmission can be impaired and disrupted, a place to receive error messages in the wild."

The exhibit takes over the gallery's space with its grandiose installation and steels your attention, with its larger than you size.

Something to contemplate: the impact of size.
