Arthur Ganson & Elizabeth King

Arthur Ganson has been making kinetic sculpture for over thirty years, having received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of New Hampshire in 1978.  A former artist-in-residence at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, he currently maintains an ongoing exhibition of sculpture at the Gestural Engineering exhibit at MIT Museum in Cambridge, Massachusetts.  His work has been and is currently exhibited in galleries and museums in both the United States and Europe.

Elizabeth King combines precisely movable figurative sculptures with stop-frame animation in works that blur the perceptual boundary between actual and virtual object.   Intimate in scale -- a theater for an audience of one -- and made to solicit close looking, the work reflects her interests in early clockwork automata, the history of the mannequin and the puppet, and literature's host of legends in which the artificial figure comes to life.
