Alberte Tranberg: Laying the Second Brick

October 23rd - November 13th, 2022
BULK Space
15700 Muirland St. Detroit, MI 48238

In Tranberg’s third project with BULK Space, she will intertwine her works within the framework and history of the former Shilo Tabernacle - setting the stage of a space in still movement. Interfering the natural elements on site gently enhancing a sense of the ever present body.

Delving into the properties of the built environment, Tranberg investigates how we as individuals constitute our presence through interior settings of our homes. Echoing the spiritual bones of BULK Sanctuary, the exhibition will play into our beliefs of safe space. Through material landscape from construction and metalwork, Alberte will queer the imagery of domesticity in a site-specific installation.

The exhibition will be on view through November 13th, each Saturday from 12-3, by appointment only.
