Radius GRIDS Episode 57: Amanda Gutiérrez

  • Comfort Station 2579 N Milwaukee Ave Chicago, IL, 60647 United States (map)

Radius extends an invitation to attend the fourth live broadcast and installation of the GRIDS series with Episode 57: Amanda Gutierrez at Chicago’s Comfort Station Logan Square - a multidisciplinary art space located in a historic building that originally served as shelter for railroad travelers in the early 1900’s.

Gutiérrez's "Giants Are Sleeping" aims to reflect the identity, transformation, and ownership of one Chicago electrical substation. Exploring the relationship between human memory and architecture, the installation pairs an interview with Kenneth Corrigan, a bookseller who inhabited the abandoned electrical substation in 1984, with a charcoal animation that uses substation photo archives as its main reference. Drawing techniques are the vehicle to convey symbolic connections that link the historical aspects of these buildings, while the radio becomes the narrative’s voice over.

Radius GRIDS is a four-part series of radio broadcasts at four electrical production or distribution centers in Chicago that examines energy propagation and distribution. The GRIDS series is supported by the 2013Propeller Fund.
