The exhibition, Grounded, focuses primarily on the exploration of architectural form and how it interacts with space. Artist Mark Bradley-Shoup says in reference to his work, “Architecture can act as a metaphor for our bodies. From the foundation to its walls to its doors and windows. We design structure like a mirror of ourselves.”
The concept of shelter, protection, and architecture as a vessel to provide such functions is at the core of what artist Mark Bradley-Shoup is attempting to interpret. Bradley-Shoup is intrigued by Brutalist architecture in particular as it embraces structural elements over decorative design. New Brutalism emerged after WWII in Great Britain as part of its reconstruction efforts. Bradley-Shoup looks at these forms as an analogy for civilization’s current condition.
