Crawl Space is pleased to present "Personally Public," new public 
projects that explore the personal, interpersonal and intimate face of
public art. Eleven artists and artist teams investigate diverse, 
personal engagements in public spaces including impersonation, poling,
personifying public objects, placing the action or constructive act in the
hands of the audience and creating surprising discoveries for individuals. 

Works in public have been occurring throughout Seattle since January, 2006
and will be presented, re-examined or expanded in the gallery in the form of
video, photography, written and numerical "data," and artifactual objects. 

While artist team SUTTON-BERES-CULLER tour zoos and museums as old men
impersonators, Peter BONNELL attaches tiny human heads cast to match the
brick, concrete and stone urban architecture to which he secretly attaches
them. In her performance and video "Mailboxes Are People Too," Diana FALCHUK
lovingly clothes all four legs of various blue USPS mailboxes with
legwarmers made from old red sweaters. Robert 
ZVERINA returns inside-out cereal boxes inside-out to the supermarket
shelves. Sarah KAVAGE and Nicole KISTLER survey juxtaposing audiences-a
crowded Bainbridge ferry and a packed Tashiro Kaplan building on First
Thursday-about the kind of art they like and how often they view it. 

In a series of choreographed "planting" activities designed to detour the
flow of pedestrian traffic, Elizabeth CONNER and Ezra DICKINSON plant
elaborate cardboard flowers in ignored green spaces within a one block
radius of the gallery. Ron LAMBERT offers pedestrians a sheltered walk in
the rain under his two-person umbrella and Vaughn BELL wheels a miniature
Mt. Rainier on a leash around the city, offering strangers the chance to
take it for a walk. 

Kristen RAMIREZ constructs a map of Seattle made from hand-printed postcards
mailed back to her with senders' personal feelings about the city. Ashley
THORNER lays out her sewn, vibrant plastic and vinyl Rapid Air Pods, for
people to assemble like Tinker Toys, in parks and plazas and on rooftops.
While sitting in varied public spaces in the US and Europe, some familiar (a
friend's front stoop), some anonymous (an airplane cabin), Peter GAUCYS
knots red acrylic thread into Cherry Red, an ever-growing, airy and hefty
accumulation.
