Another Kind of Cell: A Conversation with Kendall Buster
by Amanda Dalla Villa Adams
New Growth, 2007 Kendall Buster makes large-scale sculptures out of repeated modular units. Much of her work blurs the line between architecture and sculpture by playing on the notion of scale: while some sculptures are large enough to walk into, others put viewers in a position of power by offering a birds-eye view. In "Dis-assembling Utopias," her recent exhibition at Commune.1 in Cape Town, South Africa, Buster has returned to making smaller forms, using basic materials and simple collage and construction processes. These new works, some of which mine magazine images and archival materials and employ video, can still be read as part of her larger sculptural practice because they disrupt scale and mimic what she calls a type of "biological architecture."...see the entire article in the print version of June's Sculpture magazine.
