GALLERY TWO:

THINGS THAT GET IN OUR WAY

GUSTAV HELLBERG

As part of an international installation project spanning the United States, Australia and Sri Lanka, Torrance Art Museum presents Swedish artist Gustav Hellberg's Thing that Get in Our Way. This installation, part video and part experimental device, unpacks the way in which our relation to and conception of radiation is grounded in myth-based discourses . Hellberg challenges possible understandings which seek to explain why people still seem unable to understand their surroundings without mythic intervention. In the exhibition audiences are invited to interact directly with the gamma ray detection device and follow the artist's self-described "futile quest" to explore invisible and, to most people, unknown power issues.
